    All you've posted on this forum is asking for answers, not for help. I'm not giving you the answer, you have more than enough information to solve it.

    Yeah, homework HELP. Not doing your homework for you - that's not help, that's cheating.

    There is a difference in help and doing your work.

    Also, if you have all these multiple choice questions and you don't have the answer, it appears you are doing a take home or online test.
