Surely you've learnt function transformations? This is just of shift by radians to the right. It will have the same minimum and maximum values as but the x coordinates of these extrema will be shift to the right as well. As will the roots.
4. Just derive it and set y' = 0

Heads up: you mean differentiate, not derive. :-)
6. f(x + a) --> translates graph horizontally by -a

Thanks, and I didn't know we were talking about transformations, woops x)

You can do it your way as well.

I actually haven't learnt function transformations I did have a lesson the graphs but not any transformations. I'm not sure why the teachers skipped that :/

That's very weird. Anyhow, , why don't you let and then all you have is which you know how to find the roots of, the maximum and minimum, etc... once you've got all of those, then just back-substitute.

Thank you, I understand that bit now. However do I change the limits for part iii) ?
And if we do then does it become 0 + pi/2 < X < 2pi + pi/2 ??

Don't thank me, you did it all by yourself, well done!
