I am having a little trouble with this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The daily consumption (in gallons) of diesel fuel on a farm is modeled by
where is the time in days, with corresponding to January 1.
a)What is the period of the model? Is it what you expected? explain
so I know the but then how do I simplify that?
b) What is the average daily fuel consumption? Which term of the model did you use? explain.
c)use a graphing utility to graph the model. Use the graph to approximate the time of the year when consumption exceeds 40 gallons per day.
I am confused on the rest, please help. Thank you.
