    There is no specified operator between the double shock absorbers.

    I will elect to go with the dot.operator

    That means 1 shock absorber is worth 2^0.5 = 1.414

    So the answer is 19.14

    So the answer is 16.414
    But there is no "dot.operator" either.
    And 2^-1 is 0.5. (Assuming your symbol "^" means "to the power of"?

    15.

    and i might as well throw these in.


    Are you intuitive?


    1. The wind blows west. An electric train runs east. In which cardinal direction does the smoke from the locomotive blow?

    2. Jack is looking at Anne but Anne is looking at George, Jack is married but George is not. Is a married person looking at an unmarried person? Yes, no, or cannot be determined?

    3. If you were running a race, and you passed the person in 2nd place, what place would you be in now?

    4. If you have only one match and you walk into a dark room where there is an oil lamp, a newspaper and wood — which thing would you light first?

    5. A farmer had 15 sheep and all but 8 died. How many are left?

    6. Emily’s father has three daughters. The first two are named April and May. What is the third daughter’s name?

    Multiplication (and division) are always done before addition (and subtraction) unless its written like: (5 + 1) x 10

    If you don't know if Anne is married then how can it be determined?

    Poove marriage does not count so if there is any shifty business going on between Jack and George that is by the by.
