Homework Help: Math

For f(x) = 1/2sin2(x-90°)

What are the transformations?

The 1/2 means a vertical compression by a factor of 1/2

And (x-90°) means there's a phase shift right 90°

But what does the 2 mean? The one immediately left to the (x-90°).

Does it mean a horizontal compression by factor of 1/2?

Because when I draw the graph for it going by what I have above, I get something different from what I calculate the main 5 points as :

(x,y) -> (2x+90°, 1/2y)
(0,0) -> (90°, 0)
(90,1)-> (270, 1/2) ... When I draw the graph, the point I get is (270, 0).
