    a- a=4, k=1/2, b=-pi/4 b- a=2,k=4,b=pi/4 c- a=4,k=2,b=pi/4 d- a=4,k=2,and b=-pi/4

    I thought the same thing, but there is no a in the equation, which is part of why I can't figure it out.

    since the peiod is pi, k=2 because period=2pi/k

    So it depends on if b is negative or positive. I think its C?
