The asymptote that occurs at 1"? repeats every 1'? units.
period: FT amplitude: none, graphs go on forever in vertical
directions . The xintercepts of the graph of y = tan(x) are the
asymptotes cf the graph of y = cot(x). The asymptotes of the graph of y = tan(x) are the x
intercepts of the graph of y = cot(x). The graphs of y = tan(x) and y = cot(x) have the same x
values for yvalues of l and 1. Note: The graphs of y = tan(x) and y = cot(x) "face" in
opposite directions. y = tan (x) E ‘ The‘graph' does'not STOP even though the
plot may "appear" as if the graph stops J

at 1"? repeats every I"? units. period: 2»? amplitude: none, graphs go on forever in vertical
directions. The maximum values of y = sin x are minimum values of
the positive sections of y = csc x. The minimum values of
y = sin x are the maximum values of the negative sections
of y = csc x. The xintercepts of y = sin x are the asymptotes for y =
csc x. Note: the U shapes of the cosecant graph are tangent to its
reciprocal function, sine, at sine's max and min locations. Secant Function: = SeqT) There are vertical asymptotes. The asymptote that occurs
1‘? at 2 repeats every 2”? units.
period: 33"
amplitude: none, graphs go on forever in vertical
directions. The maximum values of y = cos x are minimum values of
the positive sections of y = sec x. The minimum values of
y = cos x are the maximum values of the negative sections
of y = sec x. The x—intercepts of y = cos x are the asymptotes for y = sec x. Note: the U shapes of the secant graph are tangent to its
reciprocal function, cosine, at cosine‘s max and min
locations. I!;..¢xm...1rl ‘1vn .
