The phase shift of a graph determines if the graph is going to be shifted left or right on the x-plane of the graph. Asin[B( » Rick H The period of a trigonometric function is closely related to the frequency of the function. They are related but not the exact same thing. Period vs » Rick H The frequency is closely related to the period of the base trigonometric functions. Since we are using the definition of the length of the given circle » Rick H To find the vertical shift of a trigonometric function you will need to take a close look at the function that you are viewing. Let's start » Rick H The amplitude of a trig function defines how much the graph is going to be getting stretched or compressed on the y-axis.

Vertex Terminal Initial Side » Rick H This single one image shows you every single relationship from a triangle to a circle and the lines that join both of this shapes together. » Rick H Finding the vertical asymtote is the easiest at of all them. Yes! Don't make a big deal out of it it's simple. To locate the vertical » Rick H Finding the horizontal asymtote is a bit more tricky then just the simple vertical asymtote. You have to take to consideration a couple of things before » Rick H You have 200 yards of fencing and wish to enclose a rectangular area. Create a function such that it expresses width of the rectangular area. The » Rick H$$\frac { rise }{ run } =\frac { Δy }{ Δx } =\frac {y2-y1}{ x2-x1 }$$» Rick H To determine if a factor is part of a given equation you have to find out if the devision of that factor by the polynomial will » Rick H Find the equation of a hyperbola with following characteristics.$$Origin: (0,0)\ Focus: (3,0)\ Vertex: (-2,0)$$a is the distance from the origin of » Rick H Hyperbola is a collection of all points in a plane, where the difference of the distance from two fixed points is the foci is a constant. » Rick H Find the equation of an ellipse with the following.$$Center: (0,0)\ Focus: (3,0)\ Vertex: (-4,0) a is the distance from the origin of » Rick H
