    1) hint : sin^2 x = (1-cos2x)/2

    2) divide 2 case for : Area1 = int (sinx) dx [0,pi] area2 = int(-sinx)dx [pi,2pi] the total area is .........

    Why is it negative sinx?

    because the absolut function must be positive number, so the area of under x-axes should give a (-) sign too, so that (-)(-) be postive

    4) \[\begin{align*} \int\limits_{0}^\pi\sin(mx)\sin(nx)\text dx &=\frac12\int\limits_{0}^\pi\cos((m-n)x)-\cos((m+n)x)\text dx\\ \\ &=\frac12\left(\frac{\sin((m-n)x)}{m-n}-\frac{\sin((m+n)x)}{m+n}\Big|_0^\pi\right)\\ &=\dots\\ &=\dots\\ \\ \end{align*}\]
