Small but pressing Fourier series question

  1. Nov 25, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Please see picture attached

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    ck = 1/T ∫ a-a x(t).e-jk2pit/T

    So x(t) = Ʃk=-∞ (sin(k.a.2pi/T).a-a e-jk2pit/T)/k.pi

    but is is supposed to be:

    So x(t) = Ʃk=-∞ (sin(k.a.2pi/T).a-a e-jk2pit/T)/k.pi.2.a

    but I don't know why?
