May someone please explain this question to me?

It seems straightforward but I don't understand it sorry.

Hi, you can think of this like y = bsinx a

It's a graph of 2sinx that's been moved up by 1, so a=1 and b=2 (If you move it all down by 1 you'll see that it is a normal sin graph, but goes between -2 and 2, so has been stretched upwards by times 2)

I don't know what the answer is, or if that's right, but that's what I'd put.

Sorry if that explanation was horrible lol, but hope that helps

Uhmm the answer is correct , but I dont understand it Its probably because I need to learn the trigonometric graphs, I can do all the trigonometic equations and identities questions without knowing the trig graphs tho...

What does the a and b supposed to be in the graph?

Thanks!

Oh okay, no worries!

The +a is going to translate the graph vertically (so +1 will move the whole thing up by 1)

bsinx means that you'll have a sinx graph that has been stretched by b (so 2sinx means times all the y coordinates by 2)

Use BIDMAS, so you have to times the Y coordinates by 2 first and then shift the whole graph up by 1.

Sorry if this isn't making too much sense, someone much better at explaining than me should see this soon!

The way I did it was by looking at the graph . I used the coordinate (0,1) to find a , then use coordinate (1/2pi,3) to find the value of b .

Thanks everyone for their help! I understand it better now, I will ask my teacher to explain it to me too when i can just to make sure i understand the concept tho

Why did you use the coordinate 1/2pi,3 to find b?? I can see why you used 0,1 but the other one :s

**Jian17**)Why did you use the coordinate 1/2pi,3 to find b?? I can see why you used 0,1 but the other one :s

y = sinx is a periodic function with a minimum value of -1 and a maximum value of +1. The difference between the two is 1 - (-1) = 2.

The transformation of y = sinx shown in the diagram is a periodic function with a minimum value of -1 and a maximum value of 3. The difference between the two is 3 - (-1) = 4. So the stretch factor b is .....

3=1+b

2=b
