    I guess I can get as far as doing the phase shift but I don't know what to do with the 2 in front of the x \[y=sin(2(x-\pi/2))\]|dw:1360883459233:dw|

    the phase shift is pi/2 isn't it?

    \[\sin(-\pi)=0\]so the graph should start at x=0, y=0

    what does the phase shift do then?

    a phase shift of -pi will shift the graph a half-period to the right, which for the sin is equivalent to turning it upside-down

    Oh i see. so the phase shift is pi and not pi/2

    right, you could also see that by applying\[\sin(\alpha+\beta)=\sin\alpha\cos\beta+\cos\alpha\sin\beta\]
