To graph g (x) = 2 cot 2 x + π + 1, we begin by setting 2 x + π equal to each quarter mark
and solving for x. a

As with the secant and cosecant functions, it is possible to extend the notion of period, phase shift
and vertical shift to the tangent and cotangent functions as we did for the cosine and sine functions
in Theorem 10.23. Since the number...
