    Given that the zeros for (sinx)/x are the values x=0, x= +-pie, x=+-2pie, x=+-3pie,.... (x=0 must be excluded, why?)
    This implies that F(x) can be factored as follows

    F(x) = (1-(x/pi)) (1-(x/-pi)) (1-(x/2pi)) (1-(x/3pi)) (1-(x/-3pi))....

    = [(1-(x/pi))(1+(x/pi))] [(1-(x/2pi))(1+(x/2pi))] [(1-(x/3pi))(1+(x/3pi))....

    = (1-((x^2)/(pi^2))) (1-((x^2)/(4pi^2))) (1-((x^2)/(9pi^2))) (1-((x^2)/(16pi^2))) (1- ((x^2)/(25pi^2)))...

    Multiply out this infinite product (or at least the first 6 factors) and collect like terms in x's to form a polynomial.

    i.e F(x)= 1- (???????)x^2 + (????????)x^4 -(???????)x^6 +........
