Hi
A, B and C are consecutive zeros of cos(px-q) therefore
Subtracting gives
Then or
And
I have guessed that the coordinates of C is (340,0), which is correct, but is there any 'formal' way of working out the coordinates of C?(b) The diagram shows part of the curve with equation y=cos(px−q)° , where p and q are positive constants and q<180. The curve cuts the x-axis at points A, B and C, as shown.
Given that the coordinates of A and B are (100, 0) and (220, 0) respectively:
(i) Write down the coordinates of C.
(ii) Find the value of p and the value of q.
Also can someone show me how to work out the vales of p and q?
thank you.
