## The Attempt at a Solution

I have not made any attempt as of yet as I have not done this in a long time and need to be pointed in the right direction. I nwould greatly appreciate anyone who has the time, to take me through each question and guide me in the right direction. I am not asking for answers but for guidance on formulas to use and a bit of an explaination why each formula needs to be used. Thanks in advance.
