Tides are cyclical phenomena caused by the gravitational pull of the sun and the moon. On a particular retaining wall, the ocean generally reaches the 3m mark at high tide. At low tide, the water reaches the 1m mark. Assume that high tide occurs at 12:00 pm and at 12:00 am, and that low tide occurs at 6:00pm and 6:00am. What is the height of the water at 10:30 am?

• math -

From 12PM to 12am = 12hrs.

From 12PM TO 10:30AM = 10.5 HRS.

h = (10.5 / 12)3m = 2.625m.

Can't figure this one out. The oceans' tide levels vary based on the phases of the moon. Find the percent decrease in tide levels when high tide is 4.25 ft and low tide is 0.75 ft above sea level.
