The x-intercepts 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 y-values 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 1 a 3 1 I l I l J I 1 s i t k I .L—quwh—u—L———Mw as the y-values increase/decrease. Cosecant Function: = CSCC-Y) There are vertical asymptotes. The asymptote that occurs 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 x-intercepts 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: = Seq-T) 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.
