i understand how to find the period of a trig equation... (either 2pi/|b| for sin and cos or pi/|b| for tan etc. but i do not understand what information the period tells me..

2. Relevant equations

alright for example.. if my problem is y= 4sin2x

3. The attempt at a solution

the period in the above solution would be pi... correct? so what does that tell me?????
