• When simplifying trig functions, other techniques such as
finding common denominators and factoring may still
need to be used.
• Simplify the following to a single trig function

sin( ) in terms of x.
• Express sin(2 ) in terms of x.
8.4 – Graphs of Trigonometric Functions
f ( x)  sin( x)
• Domain: (-∞, ∞)
• Range: [-1, 1]
• Due to the nature of the unit
circle, we know that many
angles have the same sine
value. Thus, the graph of the
sine function repeats itself over
and over. We refer to such functions as
periodic. The period of the function is the
length of the smallest interval that is repeated over and
over to form the graph. For sine, the period is 2π.
f ( x)  cos( x)
• Domain: (-∞, ∞)
• Range: [-1, 1]
• Period: 2π

Vertical Asymptotes:

where k is any odd integer.
• Range: (-∞, ∞)
• Period: π
The graphs of the other three trig functions can be
remembered by using the fact that each is a reciprocal of
sine, cosine, or tangent.
• For example, we know that
csc( x) 
1
sin( x)
. The graph of
cosecant is shown below along with the graph of sine.
f ( x)  csc( x)
• Vertical Asymptotes: x  k
where k is any integer.
• Range: (,  1]  [1, )
• Period: 2π

• Range: (-∞, ∞)

Transformations of Trigonometric Graphs
• All the transformations we have applied previously still
hold for trigonometric functions.
• Examples:
f ( x)  3cos( x  3) -- Shift the graph of cosine to the left 3
and then vertically stretch by a factor of 3.
g ( x)   sin( x  2) -- Shift the graph of sine to the right 2
and then reflect the graph across the x-axis.
h( x)  tan( x)  4 -- Reflect the graph of tangent across
the y-axis and then shift the graph up 4 units.
Changing the Period
• We can also change the period of a trigonometric graph,
which essentially means stretching or shrinking the graph
horizontally.
• Consider the function f ( x)  sin(kx).
First note that this is NOT equal
to k sin( x) . The k inside the function changes
2
the period of the graph to
.
k
• The graph to the right is the graph
of f ( x)  sin(2 x) . The period of this
2
  . The graph has been
new graph is
2
“shrunk” horizontally.
• For a function of the form f ( x)  cos(kx) , the same is true.
• Consider the function
1 
f ( x)  2cos  x  .

• The period of the function is
2

The graph was stretched horizontally.
• The final step is to stretch the graph
vertically by a factor of 2 so that its
range is now [-2, 2].
• Since the graph of tangent has a period of π, then a
function of the form f ( x)  tan(kx) has a period of  .

Consider the function f ( x)   tan  4  x     .

The second thing done is to

The last thing to be done
is to reflect the graph
across the x-axis.
• If a function is written in a form such as f ( x)  cos(3x   ) ,
you must first factor out the 3 to obtain

8.5 – Inverse Trigonometric Functions
•
Although sine, cosine, and tangent are NOT one-to-one functions,
we can restrict the domains of each of them to obtain a one-to-one
function that still encompasses the whole range of each function.
The restricted domains are:
  
 2 , 2 


•
[0,  ]

Now that we have restricted each to a one-to-one function, we
can define an inverse function for each.
Inverse Sine Function
•
The notation for the inverse sine function is
f ( x)  arcsin( x) OR sin 1 ( x)
•
The function is defined by:
y  sin 1 ( x)  sin( y)  x
•
1
Essentially, this means that sin ( x) is the ANGLE whose sine is x.

angles which have the same sine value,
by definition, the angle chosen for the arcsine
