what is the minimum height of a car?

do i like subtract 19 from 18 ?

what is the maximum height of a car?

do i add the 19 to 18?

how long does it take for the wheel to revolve once?

80s?

The question below is a different question..

The period in degrees of the graph y = cos4x is?

Is it 45 degrees? I dont get how to solve this?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 11:15pmJust look at the trig part of the function, namely the

cos(....)

the min value of that is -1 and the maximum is +1

so 18cos(..) has a min of -18 and a max of +19

so -18 + 19 = 1 metre, ---> minimum height of car

and +18 + 19 = 37 ----> maximum height of car

for y = a cos kx

the period is 2π/k or 360°/k

your value of k is π/80 , you had πt/80 which is (π/80)t

so the period is 2π /(π/80)

= 2π(80/π) = 160

So the period is 160 seconds , if t is defined in seconds

for the 2nd question:

y = cos 4x ----> compare with y = cos kx

period = 2π/4 radians or 360°/4

= π/2 radians or 90°

Memorize: period = 2π/k or 360°/k
