maximum depth is 9 feet and the minimum depth is 1 foot. The depth can be modelled with a sinusoidal function that has a period of 12 hours. If the depth is 5 feet at 12 midnight and is increasing,

a. Create algebraic model to predict the depth of the water as a function of time. Justify your reasoning. [T4] [C2]

b. The water must be at least 7 feet for Annie's fishing boat to safely navigate the harbour. She wants to enter the harbour during the afternoon.

i. Create graph of this function using technology. [T2]

ii. What is the earliest time she can enter the harbour? [T2]

iii. How long can she safely stay in the harbour? [T2]
