Looking for some help with algebra problems.  Teacher didn't assign out of the book so I don't have solutions to compare with.  \$1 per question (by numbered problem).  Need formatted on MS Word or PDF typed out.

Answer all assigned exercises, and show all work. 1. Solve each equation. (See section 1.1, Examples 1 and 2.) [4 points] a. 4( 2 1) 6 (2 4) x x    b. 1 2 (2 5) 15 9 x x 2. Solve each formula for the individual variable. Assume that the denominator is not 0 if variables appear in the denominator. (See section 1.1, Examples 4(a) and (b).) [4 points] a. , I Prt for P (simple interest) b. 1 , 2 A h B b for h (area of a trapezoid) 3. Simple interest (see section 1.1, Example 5) —Levada Qualls borrows \$30,900 from her bank to open a florist shop. She agrees to repay the money in 18 months with simple annual interest of 5.5%. [2 points] a. How much must she pay the bank in 18 months? b. How much of the amount in part (a) is interest? 4. Convert to Celsius [ 5 (F 32) 9 C ]. [2 points] 77°F
