Help With Assignment Due 2morrow

Hi i was wondering if you could help me with 2 questions needed ASAP ive sat here 4 an hour trying 2 figure em out, Doing Radians ATM

1. Develop an equation the the forrm y= cos(x+c) that looks exactly the same as y= sin(x)

2.At the start of your assignment you chose 3 variables a,b,d. Rewrite the Y= asin(bx+d) using the variables (easy as) variables a=2,b=4,d=-3
But how would i start graphing it?

1. Look at the graphs of sin(x) and cos(x). What would you do to one to make it overlay the other?

1. Since cos(-?/2 + x) = sin x, i.e. cos(-?/2 + x) = cos(x - ?/2) = cos(x + -?/2), hence cos(x + -?/2) = sin x. Therefore c = -?/2.
