Look closely at the three diagrams of the Sun, Moon, and Earth system. In order to see all three planetary bodies AS THEY MOVE IN THE SAME PLANE, where is your "vantage point" with respect to Earth? a. In space over the equator looking down at the Earth. b. In space over the North or South pole, looking down at the Earth. Link: http://www.bigelow.org/virtual/tides_sub1.html#sunmoon

    sure no problem :) btw it is b (: the reason for it being "B" is because depending on the oceans depends on the current!! that being said if you were only to look from the equator then you would not see be able to see the see the vantage point just by looking at the equator you need a bigger picture and vantage means point of view sooo a bigger view would be plain it but breaking it down is the best way to learn :)
