A marching band performs on the football field at half-time. As they perform, the members of the band stand in the shape of a sinusoidal function. While playing, they move, but still maintain the sinusoidal function, transforming it in different ways.

Darla is a member of the marching band. As the band begins to play she is positioned in the exact center of the field. The person closest to her on the same horizontal line, stands 10 yards away. The sinusoidal function extends to the ends of the playing field.

The playing area of football field measure 300 feet by 160 feet. Place the playing area of a football field on the coordinate plane such that the origin is the lower left corner of the football field.

Next, the entire band moves closer to the edge of the football field so that the sine curve is in the lower half of the football field from Edna’s vantage point. What is the equation of the sine curve representing the position of the band members after these changes?
