    sorry I'm not very good at the trigonometric identities... I'm a bit lost in your derivation, due to my own limits.

    http://www.sosmath.com/trig/Trig5/trig5/trig5.html Are you using the second to last 'product to sum' formula here?

    i used the last product to sum formula, would the result be different if i used the second to last formula/?

    not sure. I might have just made a mistake in thikning it was the second to last one. The second to last one might not even apply properly.

    I think they'd both be the 'same,' except one was modified slightly with a negative factored out of sine to get it into a nicer form. The multiplication 'should' be commutative there...

    On the second line, the second term in the integral you've got: \[-sin[(\frac{2}{3} \pi n - 1)x] \] whereas I've got it as: \[-sin[(1-\frac{2}{3}\pi n) x] \] Maybe you did something else to get your expression that I haven't seen. Or else maybe that's an error?

    Wolfram Alpha thinks the solution is not nice looking: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integral+of+1%2F3+*+cos+x+sin%28%282pi+n+x+%29+%2F+3%29 (can be useful to confirm that it's supposed to look pretty bad...)

    I just typed in the indefinite integral form, to see how messy the anti-derivative is. Then you would need to evaluate at x=0 and x=3 in the usual way.

    wolfram is having trouble because it dosent realize n in an integer but ive got what i wanted now i have the negative sign fixed thanks again @scarydoor \[\begin{align*} % b_n b_n&=\frac23\int\limits_{0}^{3}\cos(x)\sin\left(\frac{\pi n x}{3/2}\right)\text dx\\ &=\frac13\int\limits_{0}^{3}\sin\left((1+\tfrac23\pi n)x\right)-\sin\left((1-\tfrac23\pi n)x\right)\text dx\\\ &=-\frac13\left.\left(\frac{\cos\left((1+\tfrac23\pi n)x\right)}{1+\tfrac23\pi n}-\frac{\cos\left((1-\tfrac23\pi n)x\right)}{1-\tfrac23\pi n}\right)\right|_0^3\\ &=\frac{1-\cos\left(3+2\pi n\right)}{2\pi n+3}-\frac{1-\cos\left(3-2\pi n\right)}{2\pi n-3}\\ &=\frac{1-\cos\left(3\right)}{3+2\pi n}-\frac{1-\cos\left(3\right)}{3-2\pi n}\\ &=\left(1-\cos\left(3\right)\right)\left(\frac{1}{3+2\pi n}-\frac{1}{3-2\pi n}\right)\\ &=\left(1-\cos\left(3\right)\right)\left(\frac{3-2\pi n}{(3+2\pi n)(3-2\pi n)}-\frac{3+2\pi n}{(3-2\pi n)(3+2\pi n)}\right)\\ &=\left(1-\cos\left(3\right)\right)\left(\frac{-4\pi n}{9-4\pi^2n^2}\right)\\ &=\left(1-\cos\left(3\right)\right)\left(\frac{4\pi n}{4\pi^2n^2-9}\right)\color{red} \checkmark\\ \end{align*}\]

    cool. That looks reasonable! Well done. I didn't help that much. I'm terrible at these trigonometric identities...
