8 - Question

Calculate ln S? If XLK=0.95 and XHK = 0.05 and XL= 0.90 and XH= 0.10, then
a) 6.77
b) 5.142
c) 7.898
d) Can’t be calculated

Explanation: as ln (0.95/0.05) (0.90/0.10) = 5.142.

9 - Question

Solve the following equation 0.3089R2 – 0.4033R – 0.1242=0?
a) 2.45
b) 1.31
c) 8.9
d) 7.8

Explanation: Using quadratic formula f(x) =0.3089R2 – 0.4033R – 0.1242, and at f (1.31) = 0 we can conclude and thus R=1.31.
