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 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.
