# Math Help - Determining secant/cosecant equations for a graph

1. ## Determining secant/cosecant equations for a graph

[/URL]

I believe that the Secant curve has the equation y = 3 Sec ( x - pi/4) However I'm having difficulty figuring out what the cosecant equation would be. Wouldn't it just be the same thing but with a csc instead of sec?

I'm really confused, can anyone shine a ray of light on this please? I'd really appreciate it

2. your secant function should be ...

$y = -3\sec(4x)$

cosecant ...

$y = 3\csc\left(4x - \frac{\pi}{2}\right)$
