## What are the x intercepts of Cos X?

Cosine Function : f(x) = cos (x) x intercepts: x = pi/2 + k pi , where k is an integer. maximum points: (2 k pi , 1) , where k is an integer. minimum points: (pi + 2 k pi , -1) , where k is an integer.

## How do you find the X of a cosine?

To solve cos x = 1, follow these steps:

- Rewrite the equation as an inverse function equation. x = cos–1(1)
- List the solutions for values of x when. x = 0° The only time that the cosine is equal to 1 is when the angle, or input, is 0 degrees.
- List all the solutions in general. x = 0° + 360°n.

## How do you find the y-intercept of a cosine graph?

The y-intercept of this function is the point where the line “crosses” the y-axis. In other words, it’s where “x” is 0. That makes this easy to find; all you have to do is plug in 0 for x to get y. So the y-intercept is 1.

## Where do the X intercepts of the parent cosine function occur?

The x-intercepts are locations on the coordinate plane where the y-value of the ordered pair is 0.

## What cancels cosine?

The only way to cancel the cosine function is to use the inverse cosine function, like so.

## What is the cosine function equation?

The cosine function is expressed as f(x) = Acos(Bx + C) + D where A, B, C, and D are numbers, and the periods of these cosine functions differ.

## How do you isolate a variable from cosine?

Isolate the term containing the variable by subtracting constants and dividing coefficients of the variable term on both sides of the equation. In the above example, isolate the term “cos 2x” by dividing both sides of the equation by 1/2. This is the same as multiplying by 2, so the equation becomes cos 2x = 1/2.

## What is the graph of the cosine function y = cos x?

The graph of a cosine function y = cos ( x) is looks like this: Properties of the Cosine Function, y = cos ( x) . x -intercept : ( n π 2, 0) , where n is an integer. The maximum value of y = cos ( x) occurs when x = 2 n π , where n is an integer.

## How do you find the x-intercepts of an equation?

Find the x-intercepts. Tap for more steps… To find the x-intercept (s), substitute in 0 0 for y y and solve for x x. Solve the equation. Tap for more steps… Rewrite the equation as cos ( x) = 0 cos ( x) = 0. Take the inverse cosine of both sides of the equation to extract x x from inside the cosine.

## What is the period of a sine and cosine graph?

The basic sine and cosine functions have a period of 2π. The function sin x is odd, so its graph is symmetric about the origin. The function cos x is even, so its graph is symmetric about the y-axis. The graph of a sinusoidal function has the same general shape as a sine or cosine function.

## How do you find the value of arccos(0) from cos x?

Rewrite the equation as cos ( x) = 0 cos ( x) = 0. Take the inverse cosine of both sides of the equation to extract x x from inside the cosine. The exact value of arccos ( 0) arccos ( 0) is π 2 π 2.
