Hello, dayoung!
I would solve it like this . . .
We are given: .
Subtract 16: .
Divide by 8: .
Take arcsine: .
Multiply by
Subtract 2: .
20 = 8sin((pi/6)(x+2))+16 ........... subtract 16
4 = 8sin(pi/6x+pi/3) ................ divide by 8
1/2 = sin(pi/6x+pi/3) ..............arcsin1/2 to get rid of sin and get pi/6
pi/6 = pi/6x+pi/3 .......... subtract pi/3
-pi/6 = pi/6x ....... divide by pi/6 to get x
-1 = x
My question is: Is there any way to find out the other value of 1/2 sine except looking at the unit circle, which is 5pi/6?
1/2 = sin(pi/6x+pi/3) .. arcsin1/2 to get rid of sin and get 5pi/6
5pi/6 = pi/6x+pi/3 ... subtract pi/3
pi/2 = pi/6x ....... divide by pi/6 to get x
3 = x
And, how would I do it if the y value is 10?
10 = 8sin((pi/6)(x+2))+16
I don't know how to go through the steps to find the one of the values for sine -3/4 (after you go through the steps)
The only one I found was 8.3803207 for x.
By tracing the sine graph on my calculator, I was able to get the answers 5.6196793 and 8.3803207
