The tutors here expect everyone to show work. This is not the place to expect members to do homework.

First, there are too many questions here. Start by asking a few representative questions. Please don't post more than 3 or so questions per thread.

Second, we aren't here to do your homework. Please show us what you are able to do with the problem and we'll help you find out where you may have gone wrong.

Please see the Forum Rules, here.
