Simple harmonic motion problem.

The number of daylight hours in a day is harmonic. Suppose that in a particular location, the shortest day of the year has 6.5 hours of daylight and the longest day of the year has 17.5 hours. Then, we can model its motion with the function N=Asin(bt)+C where t is expressed in days and A, B > 0. Find A and B, using 365 days for one year

2. Relevant equations

N=Asin(bt)+C

3. The attempt at a solution

I found B to be .017214

I found C to be 12

I have no clue how to find the amplitude.. I've tried a million different ways.. submitted the answers.. and it keeps telling me its wrong.. so if anyone can help.. pllleeaassee do.. its due at midnight tonight and I have another problem exactly like this but with two different numbers in replace of the 6.5 and 17.5.

How do you find amp??
