How to tell if a graph is sine or cosine

How is the graph of the cosine function different from the graph of the sine function? How is it the same?

Answer:

Similarity:

In Both cosine and sine graphs, a positive and negative number vertically flips the graph and tells whether the graph starts at maximum (positive) or minimum (negative).

Difference:

The difference between the sine and the cosine graph is the point where they start.

The graph of positive cosine starts at the maximum while that of the negative cosine starts at the minimum.

The graph of a positive sine starts at the middle, goes up and then down while that of the negative sine starts at the middle goes down and then up.
