If the instructions for a problem ask you to use the smallest possible domain to completely graph two periods of y = 5 + 3 cos 2(x - ), what should be used for Xmin and Xmax? Explain your answer. @kesumonu I also need help with this one and after this @glucy7 and I won't bother you...

what is written in the bracket, clerify lil bit

  • Lukecrayonz
it was supposed to be (x-π/3) sorry!
kesumonu
  • kesumonu
the shape of this function y is similar to cos(2x) Xmin can be pi/3 Xmax would be pi+(pi/3) Xmax depends on Xmin
kesumonu
  • kesumonu
is that ok or u need more clarification
