# How do you graph y=3sinx+1?

Nov 8, 2017

See below.

#### Explanation:

To graph $y = 3 \sin x + 1$.

Start with the graph of $\sin x$.

The graph of $3 \sin x$ is the graph of $\sin x$ with the amplitude increased by a factor of 3. The amplitude of $\sin x$ is 1, so amplitude of $3 \sin x$ will be 3. Next, translate $y = 3 \sin x$ 1 unit in the positive y direction.
