For the y values that go with each x, you need a calculator, a special slide rule or a table of trig functions. Hardly anyone uses tables or slide rules anymore.

**Steve**, Friday, May 18, 2012 at 10:18amIn that case, pick points that you know. For 2sinx, say, you know that

sin 0 = 0

sin pi/6 = .5

sin pi/4 = .707

sin pi/3 = .866

sin pi/2 = 1

and so on

If you know a few key values, you can sketch the graph easily. If you don't happen to know the value of pi/3, etc, use degrees. It's easy to plot x=0,30,45,60,90, etc.
