**Introduction to Writing Trigonometric Equations**

We will only be concerned about finding equations of sine and cosine graphs We start with the basic graphs of y = sin x or y = cos x and then “build them up” to y = k + A sin(Bx + C) or y = k + A cos(Bx + C) i.e. We reference each change on the given graph to either y = sin x or y = cos x Finding equations from graphs can be difficult so you MUST PRACTICE!

**Writing Equations When Amplitude is Modified**

6
**Writing Equations When Amplitude is Modified**

If the minimum value m and maximum value M of the graph are values OTHER THAN -1 and 1 respectively: The amplitude has possibly been modified Calculate the value of A:

7
**Writing Equations When Amplitude is Modified (Continued)**

If the shape of the graph appears to be flipped “upside down” when compared to y = sin x or y = cos x: The graph has been reflected over the x-axis Calculate the value of A :

**Writing Equations When Amplitude is Modified (Example)**

Ex 1: Find an equation to match the graph: a) b)

9
**Writing Equations When a Vertical Translation is Applied**

10
**Writing Equations When a Vertical Translation is Applied**

If the minimum value m DOES NOT match the opposite of the maximum value M: A vertical translation has been applied Find the amplitude: Calculate k = M – |A| |A| represents where the graph would normally be If M > |A|: The graph was shifted up and k is positive If M < |A| The graph was shifted down and k is negative

**Writing Equations When a Vertical Translation is Applied (Example)**

Ex 2: Write an equation to match the graph:

12
**Writing Equations When Period is Modified**

13
**Writing Equations When Period is Modified**

If the graph DOES NOT have a period of 2π: The period has been modified Find the period How long it takes for the graph to complete 1 cycle Recall the formula for period: With a little algebra:

**Writing Equations When Period is Modified (Example)**

Ex 3: Write an equation to match the graph:

15
**Writing Equations When a Phase Shift is Applied**

16
**Structure of the Sine and Cosine Graphs**

The sine graph has the following structure: 1 Starts at middle 2 Rises to max 3 Decreases to middle 4 Decreases to min 5 Rises to middle The cosine graph has the following structure: 1 Starts at max 2 Decreases to middle 3 Decreases to min 4 Rises to middle 5 Rises to max

17
**Writing Equations When a Phase Shift is Applied**

If the graph DOES NOT have one of these structures starting at x = 0: A phase shift has been applied Find the value where a sine or cosine period begins Remember the structure of each Recall the formula to calculate phase shift: With a little algebra:

18
**Writing Equations When Phase Shift is Modified (Example)**

Ex 4: Write an equation to match the graph – assume the period is 2π:

**Writing Equations in General**

20
**Writing Equations in General**

To write an equation for a graph in general: Take ONE step at a time Decide whether the graph more closely resembles y = sin x or y = cos x Calculate: The value of A by utilizing the amplitude If the graph is reflected over the x-axis, A will be negative The vertical translation k The value of B by utilizing the period The value of C by utilizing the phase shift

21
**Writing Equations in General (Continued)**

Write the equation of the graph as either y = k + A sin(Bx + C) or y = k + A cos(Bx + C) Often, there is more than one correct equation Usually, one equation is more easier to find than the others You can always check your answer by using a graphing calculator!
