Parent function: $y=sinx$ Transformation: $y=sin(\frac{1}{2}x)$ See the image below.

Work Step by Step

We can easily determine that the parent function is $y=sinx$ (Blue line graph on the image) Then we apply the transformation: To graph $y=sin(\frac{1}{2}x)$, we have to stretch the parent graph by the factor of 2 (Red line graph on the image).
