You got it wrong. That's the graph of ##y = -3\sin(2(x-60^o))-1##.

- #3

wanna know why the line at 90?

- #4

change the sign and it is alright

I re-did the graph:You got it wrong. That's the graph of y=−3sin(2(x−60o))−1y=−3sin(2(x−60o))−1y = -3\sin(2(x-60^o))-1.

Is this better?

Still incorrect. Start from f(x)=3sin(2(x−60o))f(x)=3sin(2(x−60o))f(x) = 3\sin(2(x-60^o)) which can be obtained by translating f(x)=3sin(2x)f(x)=3sin(2x)f(x) = 3\sin(2x) to [left/right, it's your part to answer] by 60o60o60^o degrees.

Ok I have attempted the graph again:

The dotted curve is the original base function y = sinx, and I used it to help apply the transformations. The dotted lines show where the axes have been shifted.

Is this an improvement??

Your first drawing is almost correct. It's just the negative sign in front of the sine function that needs to be removed. May be it's better to draw the functions resulting from each transformation. So, you start from ##y=\sin(2x)##, which is a harmonic function of period ##180^o## and amplitude 1. Then draw ##y=3\sin(2x)##. Followed by ##y=3\sin(2(x-60^o))## and finally ##y=3\sin(2(x-60^o))-1##. This is the only way we can spot in which step you went wrong.

Okay, I have attempted the graph again, lets hope its an improvement at least :/Your first drawing is almost correct. It's just the negative sign in front of the sine function that needs to be removed.
