Okay, if you want to open a new link for the other set, that would be great. Just use the same "For TeacherGreg" at the front of the post but make sure to post in my question box at www.GregPearl.com so that it is routed to me correctly (as this one took longer as it went to the wrong category).

I will then continue working on both sets and get everything to you within next couple hours.

Hello again, I just completed the original question set above for you. I am not allowed to post answers to another set on this thread - I only receive proper credit when each set is in its own thread.

When satisfied with my first question set, please rate those and then post these into a new thread - you can use my weblink at www.GregPearl.com and put "For TeacherGreg" at the front of the post. These take quite a while to go through - I hope you understand that the new set would need to be posted in a new question thread for me to be properly credited.
