    Do you mean y = asin[k(x - c)] + d?

    y = asin[k(x - c)] + d

    Subtract both sides by d:

    y - d = asin[k(x - c)]

    Divide both sides by a:

    sin[k(x - c)] = (y - d)/a

    Then, set both sides by the inverse of sine.

    k(x - c) = arcsin((y - d)/a)

    Divide both sides by k:

    x - c = arcsin((y - d)/a)/k

    Finally, add both sides by c:

    x = arcsin((y - d)/a)/k + c

    I hope this helps!
