It goes through the point (3,1)

Hopefully it uploads correctly this time, thanks!

Every time I reply to this thread it refreshes the page..I'm sorry for all the duplicate comments. Are you able to see the png?

Sorry for late i just didn't saw the graph ......;

the function is :

f(x) = - cos(x(pi/3))

Please each time you have any other homework invite me or ask me directly i will give you the best answer

Good luck

Thanks Karim!

I can tell by the graph that the Amplitude is 1 and I know to find B is 2pi/absolute value of B. Do you mind explaining how you were able to find -Cos(x(pi/3))? Thanks :)

ok we know :  f(x) =  A cos(kx) - E

so :  E = 0

and :   A = - 1

and :   k = 6

so :  2pi/k = 6

so :  k = 2pi/6

so : k = pi/3

so we have just to put each terme on here place :

so :f(x) =  -Cos(xpi/3)

is clear now
