in y=4tan(1/2x + 3pi/8)
y = 4 tan (1/2)[x + 3pi/4]
so the period is 2pi/(1/2) = 4pi which is none of your choices.
Did you type your questions or answers correctly??
the phase shift would be 3pi/4 radians to the left.
2)
the inverse of y = cos x+3 is x = cos y+3
then cos y = x3
and y = arccos(x3)

I double checked my typing on the first problem and everything was entered correctly.
