Homework Statement


sup guys!

I think I've solved this set of problems, but I was just wondering if I've done it right - I have no way to tell. I'll put all the questions and answers here - plus the stuff I used. So could you please tell me if there's any mistakes?
Here it is - using Word as always!

BTW - I just realised I put in the transpose symbol instead of the dagger - i meant the dagger for the raising operator!
