It looks good, but some additional justifications should be made. At the start (and for the later series) you should state why the series converges uniformly (by the Weierstrass_M-test, e.g.).
Also, to justify that the sum of the series is integrable and that switching the order of summation and integration is valid, you should state that the terms of G ( x ) = n = 0 cos ( n t ) 2 n are integrable over any interval [ 0 , x ]
But, can save a few steps in your argument. Since n = 0 cos ( n t ) 2 n converges uniformly to G ( x ), and since the terms of this series are continuous, G ( x ) is a continuous function. The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus immediately gives you the continuity of F ( x ) = 0 x G ( t ) d t
