Notes: Writing an equation given a trig graph
To write an equation of a trigonometric function when given a graph, first determine amplitude, period, and midline of the graph. **HINT: tracing one cycle of the graph can help determine these values AND decide if sine or cosine is better. Then use those values and the formulas to calculate a, b, and d of the standard equation y = a sin(bx) + d or y = a cos(bx) + d.

15
The standard equations are
y = a sin(bx) + d and y = a cos(bx) + d Formulas we must know Amplitude = | a | = | max – min | 2 Period = 360° = end – start | b | Midline is y = (Max + Min) = d OR y = Min + Amp = d 2

16
Write the equation for the following trigonometric functions.
1) A radio transmitter sends a radio wave from the top of a 50-foot tower. The wave is represented by the accompanying graph. Amp: 1 = a Period draw the rest of 1 cycle = 360 per = 360/b 360 = 360/b b = 1 Y = sin(x) Midline: y = 0, d = 0 Hill then valley do sine y = sin(x)

17
Write the equation for the following trigonometric functions.
2) The accompanying graph represents a portion of a sound wave. Amp: |max-min|/2= |3-1|/2= 1 = a Period trace out 1 cycle = 180 per = 360/b 180 = 360/b b = 2 Midline: y = 2, d = 2 Y = sin(2x) + 2 Hill then valley do sine y = sin(2x) + 2 45° 90° 135° 180°

18
Write the equation for the following trigonometric functions.
Amp: |5-(-5)|/2 = 5 a = 5 3) Period trace out 1 cycle 8-0 = 8 per = 360/b 8 = 360/b b = 45 Midline: y = 0, d = 0 Valley then hill do cosine y = 5cos(45x) Y = 5cos(45x)
