The value of sine function is always between -1 and 1 inclusive (it doesn't matter that the input is shifted).

Then you are multiplying that by 4, so the range is now -4 to 4.

But you are adding that to -6, so the range is -10 to -2.

Answer:

Minimum = -10

Maximum = -2

You can use calculus and take the derivative then set it equal to 0, and plug that solution into the original function to get coordinates of the maxima/minima.

Or you can look at the function and imagine the transitions of the base function y=sin(x) to determine the maxima and minima

sin(t) is always going to be between -1 and 1, with the ends inclusive.

-6 + 4 * (+/- 1)

-6 +/- 4

-10 , -2
