= (+) for increasing functions and (-) for decreasing functions.
Remember: for all,
· If is an increasing function then, .
· If is a strictly increasing function then, .
· If is an decreasing function then, .
· If is a strictly decreasing function then, if.

Thus, cos x is a strictly decreasing function.
