Fourier transform help
I have a problem with the calculation of DFT(discrete fourier transform) of the signal x(n) above. I've attached the signal x(n) and also the definition of DFT I am using.
So, How can I calculate Xk ,the dft, of this signal?
This is what I did.
Can you tell me if this is right and also help me to sketch the magnitude of Xk as a function of k in the range of 0...N-1 ?
Thanks in advance,
Could you repost this with slightly bigger graphics that are easier to read, please.

Hi again and sorry for the double posting.
I am trying to sketch the magnitude of Xk that we found above as a function of k in the range 0...N-1.
Should I take the equation http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/1/5...09d70ede82.png ? But how can I use it here?
I have made an attempt. I take values for k. (0,1,2,3...N-1) but I don't know what to do with N. I have an idea to take conditions for it.If it is even or odd but I can not conclude something with that.
Can anyone help me with that?
i have checked a lot of stuff via the internet.I would appreciate if you give me a solution with that and a small explanation.
Oh, N is an integer of course!
