**Your Job**
Please write a one or two page solution.
Submit a **COPY** on the 3rd day of class.
The final draft of 1.2-2 will be collected with
Week 2 homework in a stapled package.
**Sample Solved Problem**
The link below is work by Jennifer Lahti. Try
to do as well, but write your own draft. This
is practise writing mathematics, with the mysteries
removed. Tyson Black's work for 1.2-1 is there also,
to see the range of what is acceptable.
