Awesome, thank you! Any idea how to find the equation?

Look at the period

What's a period?

azetina Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
For example the period of sin(x) is 2pi. (one complete oscilation)

How do I find the equation simply by looking at a graph though?

azetina Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
compare it to the base graph tan(x)

Caitie Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
tan(x) is pi...?

Wow I'm confused haha

Caitie Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I'm still really confused as to how to find the equation of the graph though

Caitie Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Is there a method to it?
 8 months ago

azetina Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The equation should be \[\tan \left( \frac{ x\pi }{ 2 } \right)\]

Ok first off: Based on the shape of the graph, what trig function is this?

@azetina you're right. not exactly sure how to explain this though.
 8 months ago

azetina Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the second is \[\tan (x \pi)\]

azetina Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Like I said, compare the phase shift with the base graph tan x
 8 months ago

azetina Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and look at the zeros of the function

Oh I get it that makes sense!
