graph{1 - cos(x) [-9.5, 10.5, -3.32, 6.68]}


Considering that you know how to graph cos(x), which can be accomplished by using the cos values on the y and the angles on the x. When you sum a number outside of the cos function (y - cos(x)) you are actually translating the function on the y axis. That means it can go 'up' or 'down' without deforming the graph.
