    I don't understand how they got the lines circled in red? The period is 2pi so surely the lines circled in red should not be there?

    I think you're right, for what it's worth: the lines which are circled in red should not be there.

    correction I did not really read properly
    I read "I do not understand why the red lines should not be there"

    The answer is they are NOT

    which now I wonder, why did YOU put them there?

    He's asking why are the lines within the red circles there, I don't think he put them there.

    I only ask because it is handwritten and the other day he was asking about a different question on partial differentiation and I remember his strikingly neat handwriting.

    Just to clarify, my handwriting is nowhere near as neat lol. These are worked examples given to me by my lecturer. I drew red circles over the black lines that I think shouldn't be there? My question is: did my lecturer make a mistake in drawing these black lines (that I have circled in red) or am I missing something?

    Sorry this is actually undergraduate Engineering Mathematics lol. AFAIK, Fourier series isn't covered at A-Level.

    To be honest, I don't think Fourier Series is much more difficult than some of the content in FP2 or FP3.

    Why have they introduced n=2k-1 ? I got the answer without doing this so is there a specific reason they have introduced k?

    if i'm not mistaken, odd funtion have fourier series of cosines only and even functions have fourier series with sines only?

    Ah, I see why they done so though it doesn't really speed up the working out process!

    Thanks.

    it produces a neater expression at the end
