Functions f(x) and g(x) are shown below: f(x) g(x) f(x) = -4(x - 6)2 + 3 g(x) = 2 cos(2x - π) + 4 Using complete sentences, explain how to find the maximum value for each function and determine which function has the largest maximum y-value

    for the maximum y-value, the only transformation that matters are the vertical shift and in the g(x) case, the "amplitude", or A component

    well, for g(x) the "A"mplitude and the vertical shift, because the amplitude is a shift as well for trigonometric ones
