What do you mean by "read the graph" what do you want to learn from the graph? And why was this posted under "differential equations"?

Presumably, "read the graph" means that the values of the four constants in the given equation are to be estimated by inspection of the graph. 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 $\beta= 6\pi$.

And that equation is differential equations of second order with 2 complex roots. Last edited by skipjack; February 7th, 2017 at 05:17 PM.

If you accept my suggestions that B = 1 and $\beta$ = 6$\pi$, I would further suggest that A = tan(2$\pi$/5). 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.
