The parameters a, k, d, and c require explanation. You must be referring to some convention established in your textbook or other course materials. Those are not like fundamental constants π or e. Whatever meaning was attached to them in your course, it is not recognized in all mathematics discussions worldwide.

y = acos[(x - d)/k] + c

Just select values for the parameters, subject to the conditions you were given, and substitute.

As for that reflection, the graph of this equation has two vertical axes of reflection on every period, so the reflection pretty much takes care of itself.- Log in to reply to the answers

I am guessing it must be getting late wherever you are. Function w has t as its argument, but the function definition is independent of t. Supposing x as the argument, the function has two horizontal translations, which together are not a multiple of any of those special angles.
