How do you use transformation to graph the sin function and determine the amplitude and period of #y=3sin(1/2x)-2#?
The amplitude is 3 and the period is
One way to write the general form of the sine function is
A = amplitude, so 3 in this case
B is the period and is defined as
So, to solve for B,
This sine function is also translated 2 units down on the y axis.
