Homework Help: Math

Posted by Jill on Friday, March 5, 2010 at 11:48am.

Determine the equation of the graph in the form y = acos(bx).

I will try and describe the Graph.
-It starts at the origin (0,0)
-It has a minimum value of -2
-It has a maximum value of 2.
-It has an x-intercept of 90 degrees.
-It starts moving downward below the x-axis, and then curves back upwars, and continues in this pattern.

My answer:
I think "a" should= 2.5, but I do not not what "b" should be. Whatever I put in, I can not get the graph to start at the origin. It always starts above or below y=0.

Could someone please help me?
