    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    #35 on this page

    2. Relevant equations

    Integral of a series can be assumed to be the sum of integrals

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Picture of Work

    I am not sure where to proceed from here, advice?

    Try to explicitely calculate

    [tex]\int_0^\lambda A_n \cos(\frac{2\pi n}{\lambda}x)dx[/tex]
