    Angle of Depression

    From the top of a lighthouse h meters above sea level at high tide, the angle of depression of a gull standing on a buoy is Theta at high tide and Phi at low tide. Show that the height of the tide is h(cot Theta tan Phi - 1) meters.

    trig angle question.

    Hi there question is function F = sin^2x + 1/2 sinx - 1 between 0 and PI/2 I know the minimum is -17/16 @ x = -1/4 from completing the square. ie. F = (sinx - 1/4 )^2 -17/16. Question is, how do I find the replacement angle for x? I believe the start of it is sin x = 1/4 but I don't...
