    do you know what a normal cos graph looks like? Well, because you want a negative one, you would do it upside down. and since you want "2x", it will be squashed twice as much towards the y axis

    So, is the period still 2pie? And do you stay negative the whole way?

    ok, so flip it upside down and that will give me y=-cos 2x?
