Greetings !(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The other day i was fooling around a little with equations, i came up with an equation that (when graphed) look very similiar to the graph of y=Sin() .

Tell me what you think, and if anyone cares to know how i came up with it, i will tell.

y = -1^{[ x/π ]}((-4x^{2}/π^{2}) + (x/π)(8[ x/π ] + 4) - 4[ x/π ]([ x/π ] + 1))

Note that [ x ] means the integer of x.

Edit :

π is supposed to be [pi], i don't know why it looks so ugly !
