## Homework Statement

The desert temperature,

*H*, oscillates daily between 40 degrees F at 5 am, and 80 degrees F at 5 pm. Write a possible formula for

*H*in terms of

*t*, measured in hours from 5 am.

## The Attempt at a Solution

The best I can come up with is

H=60+40sin((pi/6)t)

but this does not look right when I try and graph it on a calculator. I think the

*40sin*part is what I have wrong, but I cannot figure out what goes there, and the book is no help at all. Am I at least close?
