Open excel and do the following...

A1: Weekly Entry B1: Weekly loss C1:Total loss
A2: Enter pound B2: Nothing Yet C2: Nothing Yet
A3: Enter pound B3:=if(a3="","",a2-a3) C3: =if(a3="",'',b3-b2)

Last thing you need to do is copy the cells A3,B3, and C3 and paste to the next row for every week.

Pls i need equation for :- The sum of N1200 is invested in three project X,Y,Z at the ratio of 4,5,6 respectively. The expected cash inflow per annum is N700. the combined income for projects X and Y is...

Two ways to get to the same answer:
1) If X,Y, & Z are invested in the ratio of 4:5:6 then the amount invested in Z is 6/(4+5+6) times the total of N1200
= 6/15 * 1200
= N480
(Note: X is 4/15 and Y is 5/15 of the total investment,
4/15 + 5/15 + 6/15 = 15/15)
2) The second sentence says: Income from X plus income from Y minus income from Z is N140 and total income is N700. Total income is 700/1200 of the investment.
As formulas:
(Inc X + Inc Y) - Inc Z = 140 (rewriting: Inc X + Inc Y = 140 + Inc Z)
Inc X + Inc Y + Inc Z = 700
Substituting second formula into third:
(140 + Inc Z) + Inc Z = 700
140 + 2 Inc Z = 700
2Inc Z = 700 - 140 = 560
Inc Z = N280
Inc Z is also 700/1200 of investment in Z.
N280 = 700/1200 investment in Z
Investment in Z is 1200/700 * N280
Investment in Z is N480.

Weight at sea level vs. weight at 7500 ft

Here is how I would solve the problem starting from the expression for the gravitational acceleration as a function of the radius. You might not like the fact that I use SI units, but I will show you how to adapt my calculations to suit your needs.
The ratio of the acceleration at altitude h to the acceleration at sea level is a pure number (no dimensions). Just express the Earth radius and the altitude in the same units and your result will be correct.
To get the weight you can write
w(h)/w(at sea level)=g(h)/g, or
w(h)=150 lb* g(h)/g and your result will be in pounds.

.85/lb of nuts and .55/lb of nuts to equal 60lb @.75/lb

Convert what you know into a couple of equations. You'll need two equations because there are two unknowns. Call them X = pounds of nuts that sell for .85/lb and Y = pounds of nuts selling for .55/lb.

Equation a): X+Y=60 (total weight sold is 60 lbs)
Equation b): .85X+.55Y=45.00 (because we want to sell 60 lbs at .75/lb)

Rearrange a) to X=60-Y (subtract Y from both sides)
Plug this into equation b) and solve it for Y:



51.00 - .85Y + .55Y = 45.00

51.00 - .30Y = 45.00

6.00 = .30Y

Y = 6.00/.30 = 20 lbs

From equation a) then, X = 40 lbs. Check the results by solving equation b).

.85x40 + .55x20 = 34.00 + 11.00 = 45.00 (checks!)

(If either of those nuts is pistachios, where do I send my money? That's a good price and I want some!)
