also 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
May 25, 2014

Algebra II
trig 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
