# Can you help me determine the period and sketch at least one cycle of the graph for this function? y=tan πx

Mar 25, 2018

See below

#### Explanation:

$y = \tan \left(\pi x\right)$

Period of Tan and Cot: $\frac{\pi}{B}$
B is the horizontal stretch or compression
Period of this function: $\frac{\pi}{\pi}$
Period of this function: $1$
