#### Answer:

Amplitude = 1

Period = 6

There is no shift in the graph

#### Explanation:

The amplitude is the number in front of the sine function, as there is no coefficient in this case, we can say that there is an amplitude of 1, meaning the graph goes up and down between 1 and -1.

The period of a sine/cosine graph is

Here is a sketch of the graph

You can see that one cycle of the graph takes
