Period of sinusoidal functions from graph

You might need: Calculator


Below is the graph of a trigonometric function. It intersects its midline at (3.7,5) and again at (5.9,5).
A graph of a trigonometric wave on an x y coordinate plane. The x and y axes scale by one. There is a point on the midline of the graph at (three and seven tenths, five). When the wave touches the midline again, it is at point (five and nine tenths, five).
What is the period of the function? Give an exact value.
