cos(x) maxes out at 1. It's the largest it can get we can replace x with any complicated expression we want so cos(BLAH) also maxes out at 1 What does this mean? It means that if we want to max out y, we just replace `cos(5pi/6(x+4))` with the largest numeric value it can be, which is 1

so `y=-3+4cos(5pi/6(x+4))` turns into `y=-3+4(1)` from here you just calculate `-3+4(1)`

so -12

this graph confirms the answer. Notice how the peak of each mountain is at y = 1 https://www.desmos.com/calculator/lboel2wxy6
