Answer:

Phase shift, period and amplitude.

Explanation:

With the general equation #y=atan(bx-c)+d#, we can determine that #a# is the amplitude, #pi/b# is the period, #c/b# is the horizontal shift, and #d# is the vertical shift. Your equation has all but horizontal shift.

Thus, the amplitude#=3#, period#=pi/2#, and horizontal shift#=pi/6# (to the right).
