Amplitutde is 9 even though the number in front is -9, you take absolute value.

The period is $\frac{2\pi}{|1|}=2\pi$

There is no phase shift.

The minimum value occurs when, $\cos x=1$, thus, -9(1)+5=-4
The maximum value occurs when $\cos x=-1$ thus, -9(-1)+5=14
The range is,
$-4\leq y\leq 14$

Similar idea for each one.

Everything's fine except for the phase shift in the second problem. What happened to the 5 in the function?
