**Period of a Periodic Function**

The horizontal distance required for the graph of a periodic function to complete one cycle. Formally, a function*f* is periodic if there exists a number *p* such that *f*(*x + p*)* = f*(*x*) for all *x*. The smallest possible value of *p* is the period. The reciprocal of period is frequency.
