Since it asks for depth wrt average, we do not need the 4 m average but only how much it departs from average at t = 0, d = -2 (low tide, 2 feet below average) d = -2 cos 2 pi t/T since T = 12 hours is given d = -2 cos (pi t/6)

(2x-20)(x+1) for example would be 2 x^2 - 18 x - 20 (2 x - 10)(x + 2) would be 2 x^2 - 6 x - 20 so 18 or 6 would work

(x+3)^2 = p (y-q) g = x + 7 when g = 0, x = A 0 = A + 7 A = -7 so A is 4 to the left of -3 therefore B is 4 to the right of -3 or at B = +1 so g = 7 at x = 0 so C = 7 A = (-7,0) B = (1,0) C = (0,7)

If x = 6, bang if x = 6 bang so at ONE point x = 6 which is the vertex of the parabola. It just grazes the x axis and both roots are right there.
