Answer:

See the inserted graph and the explanation.

Explanation:

#y=-2-3 sin (x-pi)=-2+3 sin (pi-x)=-2+ 3 sin x#

The period #2pi# for sin x is the period of y..

The graph is symmetrical about (0. -2).

So, a Table for the half period #x in [0, pi]# is sufficient for extending

it for one period #x in [-pi. pi]#.

#(x, y): (0, -2) (pi/6, -3/2) (pi/3, 3sqrt3/2-2) (pi/2, 1)#

#(2/3pi, 3sqrt3/2) (5/6pi, =3/2) (pi, -2)#

The crests of f the periodic wave in the graph are at

#(-3/2pi, 1), (pi/2, 1) and (5/2pi, 1)#.
