    Graph of Function

    Hey all,

    I just wanted to check with you that the graph of the function:


    f(x) = 1 + cos( pi x)
    It shifts to the left by 1, the amplitube = 1 and the period is pi * x
    is this correct?
    plotting it is no trouble its just making sure i have the info right.
    Thanks in advance,

    Mitch

    actually, the period is 2 and there is no horizontal (left/right) shift. there is a vertical shift of 1 unit up. and yes, the amplitude is 1.
