We can only help if you show your work; else we can't see where you're stuck.
God helps those who help themselves (or something similar!).

You better start listening to your teacher...

I don't want to sound mean, but what part of these don't you understand? Do these come from a book or a worksheet? If they come from a book do they not provide some kind of instruction on how to figure these out? I would suggest you read these questions carefully pick out the parts that you need and talk through them. It looks to me like you are asking someone to do these for you. Like i said i am not trying to be mean, but trust yourself and read through them carefully and then come up with a formula. If after you read and decide what you need to solve this problem, then you can ask for help. It is not going to help you if someone does it for you. Just some friendly advice.
