The basic period for will occur at , where and are vertical asymptotes.

Calculate the period to find where the vertical asymptotes exist. Vertical asymptotes occur every half period.

is approximately which is positive so remove the absolute value

Multiply the numerator by the denominator's reciprocal.

Multiply by .

The vertical asymptotes for occur at , , and every , where is an integer. This is half of the period.

Secant only has vertical asymptotes.

No Horizontal Asymptotes

Use the form to find the variables used to find the amplitude, period, phase shift, and vertical shift.

Since the graph of the function does not have a maximum or minimum value, there can be no value for the amplitude.

Amplitude: None

Evaluate the period of function using .

Replace with in the formula for period.

Multiply the numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator.

Multiply by .

The phase shift of the function can be calculated from .

Phase Shift:

Replace the values of and in the equation for phase shift.

Phase Shift:

Multiply the numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator.

Phase Shift:

First, multiply by .
