study of sunspots. spots in a year min. is 10, max is 110. between max's of 1750 & 1948, 18 cycles occurred. Find a sinusoidal equation to model this.

My equation looks something like this so far:

y=50sin(2pi/11(x-d))+60

so How do I get the phase shift? d? I am confused about what would be x and y to plug into the formula and find d? Because the max occurs at 1750, but what would be the x and y values to sub in and why?
