A mass is oscillating on the end of a spring. The distance, y, of the mass from its equilibrium point is given by the formula y=6zcos(10wt)

where y is in centimeters, t is time in seconds, and z and w are positive constants.
(a) What is the furthest distance of the mass from its equilibrium point?
distance = cm

(b) How many oscillations are completed in 1 second?
number of oscillations =
