  1. y = 2cos(3x+135)

    cos(kx) has period 2pi/k, so y has period 2pi/3.

    The 135 is just a phase shift, and does not affect the period.

    1) The period of a trig. function y=sin kx is 2pi/k. Then period of y=sin^2(pi.x/a) should be 2pi/(pi/a)=2a, but somewhere it is given as a. Which is correct? 2) The period of r=sin^3(theta/3) is given as 3pi. How is it worked
