Step by step would be awesome, I was out sick and needed to do a worksheet to catch up!

**Reiny**, Wednesday, December 17, 2008 at 5:54pmfirst make a sketch of y=cosθ

then translate it pi/3 radians to the**right**

in general for y=cos(θ-k) move y=cos(θ)to the right k radians

or for y=cos(θ+k) move y=cos(θ)to the left k radians

if there is a coefficient in front of the angle you have to factor out that coefficient to show the phase shift

e.g. y=cos(3θ-pi/2)

becomes y=cos3(θ-pi/6) , so the phase shift is pi/5 to the right

**Reiny**, Wednesday, December 17, 2008 at 5:55pmlast line should have said:

becomes y=cos3(θ-pi/6) , so the phase shift is pi/6 to the right

(keystroke error)
