Problems marked with # have a hint below:
Ch 1 #5:  Note that the answer is 7/10. When I did this problem the Egyptian way, I got 2 5 (that is, 1/2 + 1/5). Check that the answer the book asks for is equal to 7/10, and do the problem the Egyptian way to get any answer that is equal to it.
Ch 1 #17:  First, make the denominator a power of 60.
Ch 2 #21:  This problem asks you to do a lot. Just give it a try. You do not need to show that your infinite sequence sums to the distance that you found.
Ch 3 #18:  Expand the right side and divide everything by some constant so that has coefficient 1. Then complete the square on x and rearrange the equation into standard form.
Ch 15 #10:  The subnormal is v in our formula in the notes. If you want to take it a step further, use your value of v to find the slopes of the normal and tangent lines as well.
