Step 1

Since we are entitled to answer up to three sub parts, we will answer first 3 as you have not mentioned the subparts you need help with. Please resubmit the question and specify other subpart you would like to get answered.

Step 2

A). It is given in the question that when plug is pulled the volume of water drains from the tub = v gallons.

And weight of water = 8.345 pounds per gallons

Then expression for weight of water drained (in pounds) can be written as below.

Step 3

B). After v gallons of water drained weight of tub = (weight of tub + weight of water)- weight of water drained.

Given from the question weigh...
