Hi

$\displaystyle e^{2z-1} =3 \implies 2z-1 = \ln(3) \implies z = \frac{\ln(3)+1}{2}$

$\displaystyle \frac{650-200}{800-200} = \frac{x-0}{100-0} \implies \frac{450}{600} = \frac{x}{100} \implies x = 75$

$\displaystyle g(x) = 1-x \implies g(-2) = 1-(-2) = 3 \implies f[g(-2)] = f(3) = 4-3^2 = 4-9 = -5$

$\displaystyle 3^{2x} - 3^x = 72 \implies \left(3^x\right)^2 - 3^x - 72 = 0 \implies X = 3^x \:and\: X^2 - X - 72 = 0$$\displaystyle \implies X = 3^x \:and \X = -8 \r\: X = 9) \implies X = 3^x \:and \:X = 9 \implies 3^x = 9 \implies x = 2 \displaystyle \frac{a^{-2} - b^{-2}}{a-b} = \frac{\frac{1}{a^2} - \frac{1}{b^2}}{a-b} = \frac{\frac{b^2-a^2}{a^2b^2}}{a-b} = \frac{(b-a)(b+a)}{a^2b^2(a-b)} = -\frac{a+b}{a^2b^2} \displaystyle (x-4)^2 + (y-(-3))^2 = 25 \implies x^2-8x+16+y^2+6y+9 = 25 \implies x^2+y^2-8x+6y=0 \displaystyle 23 + (23+2) + (23+4) + \cdots + (23+2n) = 608 \implies 23(n+1) + (2 + 4 + \cdots + n) = 608$$\displaystyle \implies 23(n+1) + 2(1+2+\cdots+n)=608$$\displaystyle \implies 23(n+1) + n(n+1) = 608 \implies n^2+24n-585=0 \implies n=15 \implies (n+1)=16$

Diagonal of the cube (length of the sides = a) is $\displaystyle a\sqrt{3}$ (apply twice Pythagorean). Therefore a = 5.
Surface area is 6 (number of faces) x 5 x 5 (surface of each face) = 150
