    Requiring help on graphing CSC

    The function is Y= CSC(0.5x + 3.14)

    Would the phase shift be pie units to the left? or pie/2 units to the left.?

    would the asymptotes be affected by the phase shift?

    if so, would i adjust the asymptotes to the new period first then adjust it to the phase shift or vice versa?



    Thanks
    sorry if its a stupid question

    It's easiest to think of \displaystyle \begin{align*} \csc{X} = \frac{1}{\sin{X}} \end{align*}. The asymptotes are wherever \displaystyle \begin{align*} \sin{X} = 0 \end{align*} and the phase shift is surely the same as the phase shift for \displaystyle \begin{align*} \sin{X} \end{align*}...

    This is what is stupid. Pie is an after-meal dish, as in apple pie.
    \pi (spelled pi) is a number. AND \pi\neq 3.14.
