What differences is there between a sinx and cosx function? Do they both use this equation? y=Asin(BX+C)+D
Well no, because thats the sine function, and not the cosine function! This may help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigonometric_function
That's too in depth for me. I just wanted to know the difference between y=sinx and y=cosx when graphed.
Maybe cristo just missed it, but Ry122 is actually right, cosine can also be expressed in that form of asin(bx+c) + d. This happens because sin (90degrees-x)= cos x. So in answer to your original question, the difference when graphed between sin x and cos x is that the cos graph is the same as sins, moved back 90 degrees to the left.
