what exactly are the problems you are having with these?

3. I have no idea how to do it!

I'm confused...

You asked questions about conics, quadratics, geometry, trigonometry, basics of sequences and series, annuity, and others...then you're clueless on a simple computational problem. How?

5. Most of original post is not displayed ( I can't see it anyway)

Should questions appear as 3^2 * 3^5 ? 2^3 * 2^-1 ? and other questions on indices (powers) ?

haha!, I let a friend use my account for the first time, and this is one of the few problems he needed help with, so i allowed him to use my account.
