    It's an infinite series; they're usually covered in the third semester of a basic calculus class. But if you haven't studied them yet, you can still get a rough idea of the sum by just substituting numbers in and using a calculator. Or, if you know a little python or other scripting language, it's easy to sum the series up in a few lines of code.

    If you know your basic trig, you should substitute the given values in for t and see if things simplify a bit. The picture is too small to see what the details are though, so I can't offer any more help.
