    One bag contains 5 blue and 3 yellow balls and another bag contains 7 blue and 2 yellow balls. A bag is chosen at random and a ball drawn out. The result is recorded, then the ball is placed back in the bag. If this is done 20 times, find the probability of drawing out 12 blue balls correct to 3...

    Simple Harmonic Motion

    Low tide at the mouth of a river occurs at 4pm and high tide at 10pm. Low tide is 4 metres and high tide is 12 metres. A ship needs 10 metres of water to pass safely through the mouth of the river. If the motion of the tides is take to be simple harmonic, what will be the first times during...
