You need to compare `y = 1.5sin8t - 0.5cos8t` to `y = asinBx + bcosBx` to identify `a=1.5, b=0.5, B=8` .

You need to substitute a=1.5, b=0.5, B=8 in the model equation `y =sqrt (a^2 + b^2) sin(Bt + C)` such that:

`y = sqrt ((1.5)^2 + (0.5)^2) sin` `(8t + C) `

**Hence, consiverting the given equation to the model equation yields `y = sqrt ((1.5)^2 + (0.5)^2) sin(8t + C).` **
