A general expression for c
The function FOURIER can provide a general expression for the coefficient c
of the complex Fourier series expansion.

We can simplify this expression even further by using Euler's formula for
complex numbers, namely, e
cos(2nπ) = 1, and sin(2nπ) = 0, for n integer.
Using the calculator you can simplify the expression in the equation writer
(‚O) by replacing e
simplification:
The result is
