Answer:

As below.

Explanation:

#y = - cot (3x - pi/4) #

Standard form of cotangent function is #y = A cot(Bx - C) + D#

#A = -1, B = 3, C = pi/4, D = 0#

#Amplitude = |A| = "NONE for cotangent function"#

#"Period " = (pi) / |B| = (pi) / 3 #

#"Phase Shift " = -C / B = (-pi/4) / 3 = -pi/12, " " pi/12 " to the LEFT"#

#"Vertical Shift " = D =0#

graph{- cot(3x - pi/4) [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
