Answer:

Phase shift: #5pi/6#
Vertical displacement: #16#

Explanation:

The equation is in the form:

#y=Acos(bx-c)+d#

Where in this case , #A=B=1#, #C=5pi/6#, and #D=16#

#C# is defined as the phase shift. So the phase shift is #5pi/6#

#D# is defined as the vertical displacement. So the vertical displacement is #16#
