## Description

Instructions

Instructions If the question requires computation, do the calculations and then give or select the correct values using the following rule:Keep at least 4 decimal places at intermediate steps of a calculation, and round your final answer to 2 decimal places, unless otherwise noted. For example: 16.6667 would become 16.67 after rounding(In the course notes for Module 7, probabilities such .678934 are instead rounded to four decimal places, so the correct way to report the aforementioned probability is .6789) This test allows 2 attempts. This is attempt number 1. This test can be saved and resumed later. Your answers are saved automatically.

This is what I have so far based on what the given are. For the last two questions, I just cited a source and the best possible answer based on the source. It would be best to check your notes for the expected answer for those questions. It's late in the evening here and I'd have to sleep later. If ever you can send the photos for questions 18 and 19 (assuming that I'm already awake and there is still enough time), please do so I could work on those. Thank you so much! 😊
