# Graph y=5cosx+3?

To graph it on paper, remember that the cosine function follows the pattern Max, Mid, Min, Mid, Max. Since the amplitude is $5$ and the midline $y = 3$, start at $\left(0 , 8\right)$ and use the quarter points to graph the function $\left(\frac{\pi}{2} , 3\right)$, $\left(\pi , - 2\right)$,$\left(3 \frac{\pi}{2} , 3\right)$ and $\left(2 \pi , 8\right)$.
