(3/4)sin(x(pi/4)) But when I graph it, its on none of my answer choices

Anyhow, try this graph: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=y%3D%283%2F4%29sin%28x%28pi%2F4%29%29

also make sure you have the right window to see things so use zoom trig to get a better look (that usually works)

I zoomed in but it shows that the curve cuts through the center, which isnt on any of my choices

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it's not supposed to cut through the center because of the phase shift that moves it to the right a bit normally sine graphs go through the origin, but not this one

here's a better look at the actual graph (see attached image)

I no where near got that, did you type the same exact thing I typed in?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes I typed in (3/4) sin(x  pi/ 4)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
try using 3.14 in place of pi and see if that changes anything

When I typed in exactly what you just wrote it worked, maybe it was my choice of placing the parenthesis?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
maybe, hmm wish i could see your calculator before and after, but oh well
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
glad you got it working though

I can re type what I wrote in & take a picture if you would like?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sure that would be great, thanks
 one year ago

gjhfdfgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ah, my apologies, I typed in mine ( (3/4)sin(x(pi/4)) ) & I used the negative sign instead of the subtraction sign between the x & pi
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh so that would have made xpi/4 to be pi/4*x i see now
 one year ago

gjhfdfgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yes, if you typed in what I had & instead of using the subtraction symbol & the negative one instead you would of got what I got
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah I'm getting what you got now, such a small error that I wouldn't have even thought about it lol
 one year ago

gjhfdfgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yeah, one small error completely changes the whole graph haha. I noticed it when I was retyping my problem in & it came out right. Had me confused. Anywho, thank you for help.!
