For example, the equation implies f(0) = B. As the graph shows that f(0) = 1, one can conclude that B = 1. I would suggest that $\beta= 6\pi$.

By reading the graph, I meant to find α,β,A,B, for y(x)=e^(αx)(Asin(βx)+Bcos(βx)).

And that equation is differential equations of second order with 2 complex roots.

These values of A and $\beta$ are based on assumptions about the exact values of $x$ where the graph's turning points occur. Unfortunately, one can't be so precise in giving the value of $\alpha$, because the graph depicts the function using a rather broad line.
