Find an equation of a sine curve with the minimum of (-7pi/12,-11/4) and a maximum at (15pi/8,7/6) i found the amplitude is 47/24 and the vertical shift is -19/24. Im confused about how to find the period and phase shift. thanks September 28th, 2009, 02:33 PM   #2

The minimum and maximum are half a cycle apart. The phase shift is determined by the midpoint (in x) from the min to the max. Tags curve, equation, find, maximum, mininum, sine, values ### equation to find amplitude given max and min
