    Hi,

    Just want to check my understanding on something...

    If we have a graph of cosecx, and it is stretched in the y direction scale factor 3, would this have any impact on the way it looks, giving that it carries on forever anyway?

    Above the x axis, the minimum points of cosecx (where sin has it's maximum points), would these still be at y=1, for 3cosecx?

    What is the y coordinate of the first + minimum point of y = cosec(x)
    What do you expect to happen if you have y= 3cosec(x) ?

    Hi, thanks for your help

    Y coordinate of first + minimum point is 1, when stretched by SF3 in y direction I expect all y values to be multiplied by 3, so the minimum points should be y=3?

    Think reasonably about it.
    I think you may have confused max/min points with max/min values of the function.

    Thanks! I worked out the initial points first and then just repeated it within the required range. This gave the right answer. Thanks for your help.
