Answer: The sine graph will always pass through (0, 0), While the cosine graph wouldn't. If the graph is 2cosx, it will pass through (0, 2). How high the graphs go depend on its amplitude, (how high or how far the graphs go can sometimes be infinite).

Part 2: Using these similarities and differences, how would you transform f(x) = 3 sin(4x - π) + 4 into a cosine function in the form f(x) = a cos(bx - c) + d?

Answer: I don't know, please help

**Damon**, Sunday, May 25, 2014 at 7:16pmtrig identity:

sin theta = cos (pi/2-theta)

so

y = 3 sin (4x-pi) + 4

but from above trig identity

y = 3 cos [ pi/2 - (4x-pi) ] + 4

or

y = 3 cos (-4x + 3 pi/2) + 4

but

cos (- theta) = cos theta

so

y = 3 cos (4x-3 pi/2) + 4

**Damon**, Sunday, May 25, 2014 at 7:22pmalso in your explanation explain that the cosine curve is 90 degrees or pi/2 radians behind the sine curve if you graph y = sin theta and y = cos theta versus theta

**Damon**, Sunday, May 25, 2014 at 7:33pmBy the way, there are an infinite number of solutions. eg 3 cos (4x - 7 pi/2)+4

or

- 3 cos(4x -pi/2) + 4

etc
