just draw the waveform,
and put the sample points on

then you'll see it

for being unclear, I didn't mean to do the arithmetic

for one thing this ignores aliasing.

secondly, only 22.1k is within the limits imposed by the sampling 

thirdly, ;-) it's getting late here and I'm a bit tired to crunch the 

I will do later, but once you see the samples plotted the maths won't

um, I already dealt with that.
Ideal fourier presumes a periodic signal of known frequency.
So it falls apart in theory, even before the practice
