The **function **that models the above behavior is given as:

f(x) = ACos(B(x + C)) + 6 ..... .......i

where x = 1 (that is January)

D (Average Snowfall) = 6.

Hence, the amplitude (A) is given as:

A = 6-1

**= 5**

<h3>What is a mathematical function?</h3>

A **mathematical function **is a function comprising of different variables that represent different factors or events and the relationships between them.

During what period is there more than 10 inches of snowfall?</h3><h3 />

Recall that in a year we have 12 months. Hence, P = 12

→ P = (2π) /.B → (2π)/B = 12 → B = π/6

Taking the values of A and B and plugging them in, we ahve:

F(x) = 5 cos (π/6(x + C)) + 6................ii

This means that in July, we'll have

x = 7 and f(x) = 1

Therefore,

1 = 5cos ((π/6) (7 + C) + 6 → 5 Cos ((π/6) (7 + C) → -5cos ((π/6) (7 + C)

= -1

→ ((π/6) (7 + C) = π

→ 7 + C = 6

→ C = -1

Taking equation ii, we have

F(x) = 5cos ((π6) (x -1)) + 6

F (x) > 10

Therefore

5cos ((π/6) (x-1) + 6 > 10

→ cos ((π/6) (x-1) + 6 > 4/5

→ (π/6) (x-1) > Cos⁻¹ (4/5)

(π/6) (x-1) < 0.6435 and

(π/6) (x-1) > 5.6397

→ x < 2.23 and x > 11.77

The interpretation is that upwards of ten inches of snow fall in January, February, November, and December.
