Tides are cyclical phenomena caused by the gravitational pull of the sun and the moon. On a particular retaining wall, the ocean generally reaches the 3 m mark at high tide. At low tide, the water reaches the 1 m mark. Assume that high tide occurs at 12:00 p.m. and at 12:00 a.m., and that low tide occurs at 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. What is the height of the water at 10:30 a.m.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this question doesn't really state the rate at which the water changes leaving two possibilities, a consistent rate of change or a trigonometric (so either a constant slope or a sine function). If it is constant then u just have to note that 10:30 is 3/4 of the way between 6 and 12 so it would be 3/4 of the difference being 2.5m up the wall, the other way is more complicated and probably doesn't apply
