**Problem**

A rectangular waterfront lot has a perimeter of 1000 feet. To create a sense of privacy, the lot owner decides to fence along three sides excluding the sides that fronts the water. An expensive fencing along the lot’s front length costs Php25 per foot, and an inexpensive fencing along two side widths costs only Php5 per foot. The total cost of the fencing along all three sides comes to Php9500. What is the lot’s dimensions?

A. 300 feet by 100 feet | C. 400 feet by 200 feet |

B. 400 feet by 100 feet | D. 300 feet by 200 feet |

**Problem**

The tide in Bay of Fundy rises and falls every 13 hours. The depth of the water at a certain point in the bay is modeled by a function *d* = 5 sin (2π/13)*t* + 9, where *t* is time in hours and *d* is depth in meters. Find the depth at *t* = 13/4 (high tide) and *t* = 39/4 (low tide).

- The depth of the high tide is 15 meters and the depth of the low tide is 3 meters.
- The depth of the high tide is 16 meters and the depth of the low tide is 2 meters.
- The depth of the high tide is 14 meters and the depth of the low tide is 4 meters.
- The depth of the high tide is 17 meters and the depth of the low tide is 1 meter.
