# How do you find the amplitude, period, and shift for #y = 3sin(2x + pi/4)#?

##### 1 Answer

It isn't too complicated.

#### Explanation:

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
