Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am asuming that it is true because if you cut the graph in half and flipped it over the y axis it will match up and if you did the same thing over the x axis it would be the same just on the other side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so its not the same then because when you reflect over the y axis it moves over

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so either way is going to be different, Reflecting y=cos x over the x axis is different and the y axis reflection is also different in comparison to the origional graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1almost, notice what happens when you reflect over the yaxis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(since cos(x) is symmetric about the yaxis, reflecting over the yaxis does nothing while reflecting over the xaxis changes the graph)
