Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(theta) = cos(theta) The cosine function reaches a maximum of +1 and a minimum of 1. Therefore, its amplitude is 1. The period is at what theta value the function repeats itself. The period for cosine and sine function is 2(pi). Domain means what values are allowed for theta. There is no restriction. Theta can be: infinity < theta < infinity. Or in interval notation, the domain is: (infinity, infinity) Range, like we mentioned before, the cosine function has a minimum of 1 and a maximum of +1. Range is: [1, 1] xintercepts is where the curve cuts/touches the xaxis. Cosine function crosses the xaxis at pi/2, 3pi/2, 5pi/2, .... on the positive side and pi/2, 3pi/2, 5pi/2, ... on the negative side. Or in general: plus/minus n*pi + pi/2 where n = 0, 1, 2, 3, ...
