(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The displacement (in meters) of a wave is y = 0.37 sin((pi)t - 3.88(pi)x), where t is in seconds and X is in meters.

What is the displacement y when t = 34.4 s and x = 6.7 m?

2. Relevant equations

y = 0.37 sin(t - 3.88x)

3. The attempt at a solution

y = 0.37 sin((pi)34.4-3.88(pi)6.7)

y = .16452 meters

What am I missing here? All I should have to do is plug the t and x values into the given equation right? For some reason I'm getting it wrong.
