# How do you graph y = 1 - sinx?

Jul 25, 2018

Below

#### Explanation:

$y = 1 - \sin x$ is your $y = \sin x$ graph flipped on its x-axis (referring to the negative in front of $\sin x$) and shifted up by 1 unit (referring to the 1 in front of $- \sin x$

Below is your $y = \sin x$

Below is your $y = - \sin x$. Notice that it is flipped on its x-axis. Another way you can know that it has flipped on its x-axis is by subbing any value into $y = \sin x$ and $y = - \sin x$ and you will notice that the y-value is the same but the sign is different

Below is your $y = 1 - \sin x$. Notice that it is your $y = - \sin x$ but shifted upwards by 1 unit
