can these two formula work Re: Experimenting sin(x)= -.4x^2+1.6x
-.09, cos(x)= -.6x^2 -.3x +1

Alright, so I have for sine the function -.4x^+1.6x -.09

and for cosine the function cos(x)= -.6x^2 -.3x +1

And what I need to see, is if I can retrieve these points

x y
0 0
.5 .86
1 1 this is for sine and starting cosine i need (1,1) also
1.5 .86
2 0

So what I have here is a single full semicircle from 0 to 2 and half of it is the sine as quartercircle and half is the quartercircle that is cosine.

So does these two equations fulfill that table?

sin(x)= -.4x^2+1.6x -.09

x y
0 -.09 good enough
.5 .7 not close enough to .86
1 1.2 not close enough to 1

cos(x)= -.6x^2 -.3x +1

x y
0 1 exactly what I want when that is pushed over as a horizontal shift
.5 .7 not close enough to .86
1 .1 close enough to 0

Judging from the above, I would say there exists two formula that can closely match the desired plotted points of a single semicircle.
