Below

#### Explanation:

Important points to remember:

For sine graphs, its general form is

where a=amplitude

b= your shift to left/right

n= used to help calculate your period

- Calculate the amplitude
- Find the period of the function
- Check to make sure whether you need to shift the graph up or down, left or right
- See if you need to flip the graph on its x-axis or y-axis
- Label your graph if it meets your x or y axis
- Write down the equation of your graph
- Check your domain and range of your graph

So for your

Your amplitude is 1

Your period is

You don't have to shift up/down or left/right because b=0

You don't have to flip the graph on its x or y axis
