1. ## Heeeeelp Urgent

Hey i have a question for Maths B in queensland, australia. Here it is...

Water flows in and out of a tidal pool according to the equation:

g = 50SIN((2π/6)x)

Where g is the flow of water in cubic meters per hour and x is the time in hours. At g=0, the water flow is 0. Greenies who are protesting about water quality begin measuring the flow into and out of the pond 3 hours after g=0. Over a certain period of time approximately 119 cubic metres of water was measured. For how long was the flow measured?

Any help here would be appreciated
Cheers
Ned

substitute $g = 119$ and solve for $x$

So you need to find $x$ such that:

$119 = 50 \sin \left( \frac {2 \pi}{6}x\right)$

now continue

EDIT: and of course you would have to subtract 3 from the answer above, since they started measuring 3 hours after the flow started
