5. Solve 2m2+ 19m + 30 = 0

6. A ladder 17 feet long is leaning against a wall. If the ladder, vertical wall and the floor from the bottom of the wall to the ladder form a right triangle, find the height of the wall where the top of the ladder meets if the distance between bottom of the wall to bottom of the ladder is 7 feet less than the height of the wall?

7. If the difference between the roots of the equation x2 - 13x + k = 0 is 17. find k

8. Construct a 3 x 3matrix whose elements are aij = i2j2
