Answer:

Phase Shift # = -C / B = -pi/4, pi/4# to the left.

Vertical Shift # = D = -10#

Explanation:

#y = 3 sin (1/2) (x - pi/4) - 10#

Standard form of sine function is #y = A sin (Bx - C) + D#

#A = 3, B = (1/2), C = pi/8, D = -10#

Amplitude #= |A| = 3#

Period # = (2pi) / |B| = (2pi) / (1/2) = 4pi#

Phase Shift # = -C / B = (-pi/8) / (1/2) = -pi/4, pi/4# to the left.

Vertical Shift # = D = -10#

graph{3 sin(x/2 - pi/8) - 10 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
