Answer:

As below.

Explanation:

#y = - tan (x - pi/2) + 5#

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

#A = -1, B = 1, C = pi/2, D = 5#

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

#"Period " = (pi) / |B| = (pi) / 1 = pi#

#"Phase Shift " = -C / B = pi/2 / 1 = pi/2, " " pi/2 " to the RIGHT"##

#"Vertical Shift " = D = 5#
