# [moved] Fourier Transform Related Question

1. ## [moved] Fourier Transform Related Question

Hello there,

I am asked to find Fourier transform of y[n] in terms of Fourier transform of x[n].. attached is my attempt! I have a specific question at the end of the attempt.

Thanks :)

both options are incorrect.
x[n] = X(e^jw) not x[k]

The definition of y[n] is not valid! if n = 1 y[n] = x[1/3]??? No! You probably have to specify that y[n] = x[n/3] for n = 3k, where k is and integer. This is called upsampling. In that case the second sum you wrote is correct. However, your parenthesis: e^-jw(3k) is misleading! You should have written e^-j(3w) k. You have to realize that X(e^jw) while standard, it a bit of an abuse of notation. Really the DTFT is a function of w. The sum you wrote is just the DTFT with 3w replacing w. Therefore we can do the same in X(e^jw) -> X(e^3jw), number 2.

Small typo, you have to specify that y[n] = x[n/3] for n = 3k, where k is and integer AND 0 OTHERWISE.
