So hopefully in your "class" it was explained how at the turnover frequency that tau=1 (this can be seen better by plotting the log I vs log nu

Putting that (tau=1) into the optical depth equation (last on your pic), and re-arrange the equation for GHz ^ (-2.1), now put

Am I able to direct message you to ask you another question that relates to this part seeing as you seem to know what you're doing?

Putting that (tau=1) into the optical depth equation (last on your pic), and re-arrange the equation for GHz ^ (-2.1), now putthatback into the same optical depth equation (in other words you are substituting your result for the GHz ^ (2.1) when the optical depth was 1. You'll see everything cancel leaving just the result the question asks for`. Hope that helps!
