    Guys stop confusing him. Burhan, your first answer was right. You just forgot to add in that fraction.

    The answer key says it should be \[\huge A'(t) = \frac{ 1 }{ 50\pi }\sin (\frac{ t }{ 50\pi })\]

    if i just simplify that fraction to 'x' then =20((2sinx)(cosx)(x)) =20(xsinx)

    so according to our calculations, the answer should be: |dw:1371612290008:dw| which seemed right. the book might have a typo

    set the derivative equal to 0, then check the signs nearby

    for it to equal zero, you have to shift t by the period pi
