# Period and cycle of a function .is the same thing, no?

[SOLVED] period and cycle of a function.....is the same thing, no?

it essentially is right?

but can be further defined as

a)cycle.....-can start at any x point

b)period....-the unit measure of the cycle

correct?

One cycle refers to a specific period starting from one specific point on the function. A period is the long each cycle is. So yes you were pretty much right.
