    Just happens to be an equation of a pattern randomly picked but with a certain meaning...

    It represents various points of peak amplitude on a sinusoidal waveform of sound or energy with one given tone to ride upon in uncorrupted constant frequency in linear timespace during one long cycle in travel from left to right...


    I was wondering if someone could try and help me solve it and put it with in a graph form.... Thanks for any envolvment. ~N~:confused:

    This is what the graph looks like - though you should easily have been able to plot it out yourself.

    Yes, you are confused! First, this was posted under "tutorials". I've moved it here, under "Precalculus homework".
    Second, you say "Just happens to be an equation of a pattern randomly picked but with a certain meaning..." but it's clearly NOT an equation- it's a list of numbers. Finally, you say "I was wondering if someone could try and help me solve it". Solve what? You haven't stated a problem to be solved. If all you want is a graph then tide has done that for you, apparently assuming that what you are giving are y-values for x-values he made up. If you want a graph or even a function, you will have to give "x-values" to go with each of your "y-values". If these are indeed "tones" through one long cycle, you should have a "time" associated with each tone.
