1. So what would my next step be? How do i show that the fourier series is given by the equation in the questions?
2. and using those results, how do i calculate 1-(1/4)+(1/9)-(1/16)+... and the 1/(n^2) sum to infinity?
You may want to open up the sum you got: it's exactly the same as in the question, so you already have (1)
As for (2): according to what you wrote: .
Likewise: ....get the sum
