Unformatted text preview: = This equation, along with that from part (b), gives us two equations in 1 q and C 10 24 . 2 . 6 2 1 2- = + q q q and . C 10 70 . 3 2 13 2 1- = q q By elimination, substitution and after solving the resulting quadratic equation, we find: C 10 06 . 2 6 1- = q and C 10 80 . 1 7 2- = q ....
