    (I guessed 3pi) Does this make sense without the range given?

    If no range is given, you can presume that they mean that all values of theta are acceptable, that it, from 0 to 2pi (or -pi to pi, whichever convention you are using). It really helps if you can come up with a basic sketch, as there are often symmetry ideas that can save you a lot of time.

    Yes because if you sketch it, it's an enclosed shape on it's natural domain so the area would be bounded by it entirely on [-\pi,\pi)

    cos (-pi) = -1, same as cos pi not - cos pi

    So these two terms cancel out.
