    fina A B and C

    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 P = \dfrac{2\pi}{B} - you are given that P=\pi

    "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)

    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 Bx'+ C= 2\pi when (subtract the first equation from the second) B(x'- x)= 2\pi. Since we are told that the period is \pi, we can take x'- x= \pi to get B\pi= 2\pi.

    Finally, the maximum occurs at \pi/2. Since we are told that it happens when x= 0, we must have A(0)+ B= B= \pi/2.
