JenniferSmart1

how do I graph \[y=-3cos(3x)\]? I know that 3 is the amplitude I know that the graph will be upside down. I know that the period is \[\frac{2\pi}{3}\]

    Copy the image and begin by marking your amplitude, the highest and lowest point of the wave.|dw:1360290026921:dw|

    now label \[(\frac{2\pi}{3},f(\frac{2\pi}{3}))\]this point is the end of your period.

    \[f(x)=-3cos(3x)\]\[f(\frac{3\pi}{2})=-3cos(3(\frac{3\pi}{2}))=-3cos(9\pi/2)\]

    it's \[\frac{2\pi}{3}\] for the period

    @JenniferSmart1 My fault. You evaluated it correctly, I would have gotten 0 for f(3pi/2) while f(2pi/3) is -3. Ok, so now can you finish the graph from here? So far you have done an excellent job.

    Could we label the highest point (x, f(x)) if we were asked?

    Let's see \[( \frac{\pi}{3} , 3)\] because \[\frac{2\pi}{3\cdot2}\]

    Ok! I think your graph seems pretty complete, well done. Here is the actual graph for reference http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=-3cos%283x%29

    I'm guessing because its half way between 2pi/3
