# ACT Math : How to find the period of the sine

## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Sine

What is the period of 2sin(4Θ)?

None of the answers are correct

Explanation:

The period of sinΘ is 2Π, so we set the new angle equal to the base period of 2Π and solve for Θ.

So 4Θ = 2Π and Θ = Π/2.
