    One way might be to try rewriting 3csc(2x) as 3/sin(2x). Then from here, mark on your graph where one period should end and where the amplitude should be. Since it's 1/sin it will be "upside down" Look at this picture to give yourself some help along the way so that next time you can see. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%203csc(2x)&t=crmtb01 The main points to hit when graphing any trig function are what it looks like at 0, T/4, T/2, 3T/2, and T, since it repeats after that and you can kind of "guess" by filling in the points between where the curve should look like.

    so if i put that function... 3/sin(2x)?

    i can help with an alternate solution ..but for that you need to answer my queries

    well thats great...now what you need to understand is that the graph of cosec 2x will be same as cosec x only difference is that we have to minimize the graph to t=pi

    sin2x makes the half of sinx

    well next step is to increase the magnitude of cosec 2x 3 times
