Properties of the Secant and Cosecant Functions • The function F (x) = sec(x) ∞ – has domain x : x = π 2 + πk, k is an integer = k=−∞ (2k − 1)π (2k + 1)π , 2 2 – has range {y : |y | ≥ 1} = (−∞, −1] ∪ [1, ∞) – is continuous and smooth on its domain – is even – has period 2π • The function G(x) = csc(x) ∞ (kπ, (k + 1)π ) – has domain {x : x = πk, k is an integer} = k=−∞ – has range {y : |y | ≥ 1} = (−∞, −1] ∪ [1, ∞) – is continuous and smooth on its domain – is odd – has period 2π In the next example, we discuss graphing more general secant and cosecant curves. Example 10.5.4. Graph one cycle of the following functions. State the period of each. 1. f (x) = 1 − 2 sec(2x) 2. g (x) = csc(π − πx) − 5 3 Solution. 1. To graph y = 1 − 2 sec(2x), we follow the same procedure as in Example 10.5.1. First, we set π the argument of secant, 2x, equal to the ‘quarter marks’ 0, π , π , 32 and 2π and solve for x....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
