Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 3sinx  2cosx similar with y = 3sinx  2sin(90x) y_minimum when x = 0, it is y = 3(0)  2(1) = 2 y_max when x = 90, it is y = 3(1)  2(0) = 3 so, the range for y is 2 <= y <= 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why did you convert cosx to sin(90x) any specific reason?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is an identity in trigono :) cos(x) = sin(90x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i trying to make y in sin terms, so that easier to get the output values maybe :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u can make y in cosine terms too y = 3cos(90x)  2cosx you're welcome :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the cosine graph can be though as the sine graph offset by 90 degrees phase. so basically RadEn's method is to simplify the graph. Of course, \(y=3\sin x  2\cos x\) y is maximum when the y=3sin x is max and y=2cos x is min. note that there cannot be negative values. for min y ,it is vice versa. the max value of 3sin x is 3(sinx =1), while the min value of 2 cosx is 0. so that gives 3 the min value 3sin x is 0(sinx =0), while the min value of 2 cosx is 2. so that gives 2 so, 2<=y<=3
