Making the first 3 as small as possible, they would have to be 1, 2, and 3

let the 4th be x and the 5th be y

then

1+2+3+x+y = 90

x+y = 84

remember, y has to be the largest

we want x to be as large as possible but still be less than y

x y

.. ..

.. ..

40 44

41 43

42 42 --->but they can't be equal

43 41 ---> x is no longer less than y

so it looks like x = 41 and y = 43

the largest that the second largest number can be is 41

22. The average number of days per month is 30

301/30 = 10.0333

and the 10th month is October

or

365-301 = 64 days left

but Dec + Nov = 31+30 = 61

so that puts you back into October

32.

4.2 < 3n < 57

divide by 3

1.4 < n < 19

So n can be 2,3,4, ... , 17,18

Count them, there are 17

42.

a^2 + 4a/2 + 3b

= 81 + 4(-9)/2 + 3(10)

= 81 - 18 + 30

= 93
