Graph the following function over a two-period interval.
Graph the following function over a two-period interval. Label every tick mark on the x-axis (pick appropriate value to make your graph fit)

y = -2sin(1/4x)

What difficulty are you having with this? Do you know what the graph of y= sin(x) looks like? Do you know what the period of this function is?

What does it mean by over a two-period interval? And im not sure what to label each tick mark as. Ye, i know how the graph of y = sin(x) looks like and isnt the period, 8 pi?

Do you have a textbook and/or lecture notes? If so look that up.

Nope, no textbooks, the lecture notes are just examples, they don't really explain how to do this problem.

If that is the case, it I were I would get the heck out of that course.
