Graphs of Sin(x) and Cos(x) question??

What is the amplitude, period and phase shift?

I got the Period and Amplitude right.

y=2sin(x-pie) +3

|A| |2| =2 amplitude lies between -2 and 2 yaxis then vertical shift up 3 units

period is 2Pie I did 2pie/1 which is 2 pie.

Now for phase shift I did pie/2pie and on me answer page says answer is pie.

I got this one wrong to y=-2 cos(pie/2x+pie)

Amplitude is 2

Period 4

Phase shift I had as -pie/4

I think your amplitude is correct, but I think the phase shift is simply the additional factor within the sine function:

We don't know the period.

All we know is t = 2 t/T = x.

But we don't know so we cannot calculate the period.

All we can do is express T in the form T = (2 t)/x

I made a mistake I divide by the period when Im supposed to divide the b part for the denominator y=Asin (Bx-C)+D

Please have a look at the site

Transformations of the Sine and Cosine Graphs

the author has given good examples to make concept very clear.

It's spelled "pi", not "pie." (Headbang) Get it right!
