Y=Asin(BX+C)

the maximum value of y is 6 when x=0, y=6

the period of the graph is equal to PIE

A,B and C are positive and C is less than 2PIE

anybody???

The period is given by - you are given that

"Maximum Value" is a synonym of*amplitude*which is A in your equation

Now you know A you can find C by subbing in (0,6) for (x,y) - Mar 10th 2011, 12:56 PMHallsofIvy
First, it is "pi", not "pie".

The maximum value of y= A sin(Bx+ C)**is**A.

If for some x, Bx+ C= 0, the when (subtract the first equation from the second) . Since we are told that the period is , we can take to get .

Finally, the maximum occurs at . Since we are told that it happens when x= 0, we must have . - Mar 10th 2011, 03:41 PMmwin002
i dont get....im a surveyor not a math guru...i need to work these out for my unit standards but god dam i cant get my head around...

thanks for tryinh to help
