math

You are standing beside a merry-go-round that your friend is riding. The merry-go-round is 8m in diameter. Describe how the shape of the sine curve models the distance from you and your friend. Identify the function that will model this situation as well as a function that will model the situation when you are standing 4m away from the merry-go-round. In your explanation use the following terms:

Sine
Function
Radius
Repeat
Rotate
Amplitude
Period
Intercept
Maximum
Minimum
Axis of the curve
