    for some reason in the back of my book it has \[\frac8\pi\sum\limits_{r=1}^\infty\frac{r\sin(2rx)}{4r^2+1}\] as the answer, which seams like a mistake to me , but maybe i have overlooked something

    He used the last trig identity on this page convert it. http://www.sosmath.com/trig/Trig5/trig5/trig5.html

    the only qualm i have on this question is the plus sign in the denominator of answer in the back of the book, i got a minus sign , which seams to graph the correct thing so im not sure .
