Comments: Stacy Lodden's paper was the only fully correct solution
received. It seemed that many people made the same mistake in part A.
Many stated that the Fourier sine series of f(x)=1 is 0 because the
Fourier cosine series is identical to the Fourier sine series. However, a
similar example is given on page 99 of the book where the author takes the
Fourier sine series of f(x)=100, and it obvious by that example that the
Fourier sine series is just equal to the odd extension of the function
(and not equal to zero).
