Sin graph of equation

  1. Dec 1, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This may seem like a stupid question so i apologize.

    This is the general form for the said equation: y=sin c (x-d)

    c= 28

    How would i enter this into my calculator (ti 84) to graph it??

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    y=sin (28)(x-3)
    y=sin (28(x-d))
    or something else.

    Again, I apologize if this is a stupid question

    Depends on whether you mean y=(sin(c))*(x-d) or y=sin(c*(x-d)). I suspect the latter, but that's just guess. If they just said y=sin c (x-d) that's kind of ambiguous, as you noticed. It's not a stupid question, but there's no clear answer.
