The population of a ski-resort town, as a function of the number of months into the year, can be described by a cosine function. The maximum population of the town is about 15000 people, and the minimum population is about 500 people. At the beginning of the year, the population is at its greatest. After six months, the population reaches its lowest number of people. What is the equation of the cosine function that describes the population of this town?
