    Smile The Sinister Sine Function

    Hello,
    I have to complete an assignment with the help of Ti-Interactive (which I'm not very good at using!)
    I know that the general formula for the Sine Function is
    f(x) = a*sin(bx+c)+d

    A = amplitude
    D = baseline
    C = movement along y-axis

    But what does B stand for? And how can I find it?

    Thanks,
    Amine

    It's related to the period of the function.

    If you're working in degrees, period = \frac{360}{b}.

    If you're working in radians, period = \frac{2 \pi}{b}.
