Transforming the Tangent Graph - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

When graphing a tangent transformation, start by using a theta and tan(theta) t-table for -pi/2 to pi/2. In the case of y=Atan(Bx) or y=Atan(B(x-h)), define Bx or B(x-h) to be equal to theta and solve for x. Now use this equation to create a x and Atan(Bx) or Atan(B(x-h)) table, which will give coordinate pairs to plot.
