Application of Trigonometry for Surveying

To determine the distance to an oil platform in the Pacific Ocean from both ends of a beach, a surveyor measurers the angle to the platform from each end of the beach. The angle made with the shoreline from one end of the beach is 83 degrees, from the other end 78.6 degrees. If the beach is 950 yards long, what are the distances

Trigonometry function

The questions are in the attachment 1. The tide in a local coastal community can be modelled using a sine function. Starting at noon, the tide is at its "average" height of 3 metres measured on a pole located off of the shore. 5 hours later is high tide with the tide at a height of 5 metres measured at the same pole. 15

Trigonometry - Period and Amplitude

The model for the height of a tidal wave for a 24 hour period is given by H(t) = 1.25 + 0.85 cos 0.498(t - 1) where H(t) is the height of the tide in meters at a time t measured in hours from midnight. (a) What is the period of the wave? (b) What is the greatest height of the wave? (c) At what time will high tide first occur?

Pythagorean Theorem Proofs

There are more than 50 ways to prove the Pythagorean theorem.
