Homework 4

General Comments

  • Problem from the book are taken from the Chapter Review Problems sections.
  • For full credit, provide context for each problem, show all calculations, and explain your work/answers.
  • Numbers and/or algebra by themselves are not enough.
  • You will lose a significant amount of credit if you do not show enough work/context for your answers.
  • Homework assignments must be very neatly written or typeset (e.g. using Word or OpenOffice).

Details

Do the following exercises from page 69 of your textbook and the ones listed below.
ProblemPointsNotes
