    Find the Fourier Series of f(x) = (pi - x)

    Can you please help me with a Fourier series question? Any help would be
    greatly appreciated!

    Find the Fourier series of f(x) = pi - x
    Thinking of f(x) as defined on the interval [-pi,pi]

    So I know I must find ao, ak and bk.

    I have found:

    ao = 0
    ak = - (x sin(kx)) / (k pi)
    bk = + (x cos(kx)) / (k pi)

    Is this correct? Please provide step by step solutions is possible.

    Thanks again!

    Have you been given formulas for the coefficients ak and bk? Please post them and say where you get stuck in using them.
