**Problem**

Find the equation of the curve passing through the point (3, 2) and having s slope 5*x*^{2} - *x* + 1 at every point (*x*, *y*).

A. $y = \frac{5}{3}x^3 - \frac{1}{2}x^2 + x - \frac{31}{3}$ | C. $y = 5x^3 - 2x^2 + x - 118$ |

B. $y = 5x^3 - 2x^2 + x - 31$ | D. $y = \frac{5}{3}x^3 - \frac{1}{2}x^2 + x - \frac{83}{2}$ |

**Problem**

The number of hours daylight, *D*(*t*) at a particular time of the year can be approximated by

$D(t) = \dfrac{K}{2}\sin \left[ \dfrac{2\pi}{365}(t - 79) \right] + 12$

for *t* days and *t* = 0 corresponding to January 1. The constant *K* determines the total variation in day length and depends on the latitude of the locale. When is the day length the longest, assuming that it is NOT a leap year?

A. December 20 | C. June 20 |

B. June 19 | D. December 19 |

B. 1/4 | D. 5/12 |
