I want to simplify this ?2sin(2x+45°), but all I can think of is y=?2sin(2x+45°) and make a graph.. In that case, baseline is 0, ?2 is the amplitude, the period is 180, pitch 45° and starting point is -22.5 (I might have that wrong because 45 is in degrees), the maxline is 1.41 and minimum is -1.41. Is that correct way to do it, or is there another way to simplify it? I really don't understand the question. Best regards.
