    trigonometric graph transformations.

    Hello,



    y = \frac{1}{3} sin \theta for this function would I multiply all the y values by 1/3 ?

    Yes all values of y for thetas of graph of equation

    y = sin \theta

    example for cos

    An example of y = 10sin(x)

    what about the graph of  y = sin \frac{1}{3} \theta ? Do I multiply all the x values by 3 ?

    so 90 degrees times 3 etc....?

    Here is another example for 4sin(x/3)

    I suggest a brief study of this site as well, leave the things that you don't understand , just read the graphs and nearby explanations
