Could somebody give me a STEP BY STEP working out of how to do this answer.

For the first part just put 1 where t is

I know that! I'm talking about part b!

haha yeah I'm working that one out in another tab - don't suppose you have an answer that you know is right do you? Got a method but not sure if it's right

For the second part you know t must be less than 12 and h must be 9 so you can put in what you know to give 9=10+5sin(piT/6)
you can then do 9-10 = -1 = 5sin(piT/6) and then
sin^-1(-1/5)=piT/6 meaning in your next step you can do 6sin^-1(-1/5) / pi = T

Do you know if in this question you're using radians or degrees?

really? it's obvious right?

Yeah I thought so with the pi but thought it was worth checking

Apparently, the answer is = 0623, 1137. (The mark scheme says it will allow both radians or degrees, but i used radians).

Could you actually give me a step by step explanation of how and why you got the answer?

What don't you understand about it? What have you tried?

Yes, I tried it and I treated it as a trigonometric equation, however something went wrong after that. That's why was I want a step by step explanation, so I can identify my mistake.

Post what you've tried and we'll identify your mistake for you.

Everything up to

This has several solutions:

This gives (ignoring the negative solutions because time is positive):

and I'll let you do the other one. But 6.384 hours is 6 hours and 23 minutes after midnight.

Can you do the other solution?
