It is C2 AQA. Can you help me how to sketch the graphs of:

sin(2x-180)=y

tan1/2x=y

and

1-tan1/2x=y

Please tell me how to do it

Do you know how transformations of graphs for non-trig functions work? Then transforming trig is really similar, just a bit more complicated.

Yes i do know
Okay, so for sin(2x-180), what does the 2x do to the sin(x) graph? What happens after that's been done?

Stretch the graph in the X direction by 1/2

Correct Now what does the -180 do?

shifts the curve to the right, so the curve will cut at 180

Bingo. So can you sketch the transformation? It may help to do it in stages.

Okay. Thank you!

How do I do 1-tan1/2x=y

I'm not quite sure what you're suggesting here, but it looks to me like you are getting the order of transformation wrong. The required order is either:

or:

I was suggesting that it was 2x first and then 180, but I must have gotten confused. Sorry.
