    Please don't post more than two questions in a thread. Otherwise the thread can get convoluted and difficult to follow. Start new threads as necessary for remaining questions. eg. If you have five questions, post two of them in a thread and start a new thread for the remaining one etc.

    And if the question has more than two parts to it, it is best to post only that question and its parts in the thread and start a new thread for other questions.

    And, as has been requested, please show what work you've done and where you get stuck.

    Thread closed.
