How do you find the amplitude, period, and shift for #y = 3sin(2x + pi/4)#?
It isn't too complicated.
The amplitude, which can be referred to as the variable
The number after sin and before
The period for this particular problem would turn out to be
The shift is how much you move your graph left and right. If it is a positive number in the parentheses, you move the graph left. If it is negative, you move it right.
You move the graph left/right as many units as shown, in this case it is left
Hope this helped!
