Sample Questions

1. For a Saskatchewan town the latest sunrise is on December 21 at 9:15 am. The earliest sunrise is on June 21 at 3:15 am. Sunrise times on other dates can be predicted using a sinusoidal equation.
a) Sketch the graph of the sinusoidal function described above.
b) Write 2 equations for the function; one using sine and the other using cosine.
c) Use one of the equations in (b) to predict the time of sunrise on April 6.
d) What is the average sunrise time throughout the year?
e) On what days will the sunrise at 7:00 am?

2. Given that a= 7/25, and cosb= 9/41 and neither P(a) nor P(b) are in quadrant 1, find:
a. sin(a+b) b. cos(a+b) c. sec(a+b) d. in what quadrant is the point P(a+b)?

3. A 5 digit pin number can begin with any digit (except zero) and the remaining digits have no restrictions. If repeated digits are allowed, find the probability of the PIN code beginning with a 7 and ending with an 8.
