    Periodic Functions


    Excuse the messiness
    I need to know a function to make a pattern like that where as that there are 2 loops.
    So its to be periodic but it slopes up twice.
    Any help with this would be greatly apreciated.
    Thanks in adavance

    You said it has a loop.
    It is not possible because the geometric meaning of a function is something that only has one value for any vertical line drawn.
