  # How to graph trigonometric functions

How do you plot trig graphs? Given a function f (x) = a + b trig (cx - d), where trig represents any trigonometric function, start with the base trigonometric function and then use  ## Graphing Sine, Cosine, and Tangent

We can see this pattern in the graphs of the functions. Let P =(x,y) P = ( x, y) be a point on the unit circle and let θ θ be the corresponding angle. Since the angle θ θ and θ+2π θ + 2 π correspond
