d = 4 q 10 d + 25 q = 390 10 (4q) + 25 q = 390 65 q = 390 q = 6 etc Your error is here: 0.40q+0.25q=3.90 then you said 65q=3.90 no 0.65 g = 3.90 3.90/0.65 = 6 not .06

**Math**

34.375 / .125 = 275 I divided I do it the science way, multiply so units cancel you can do it by ratios .125 in/1 ft = 34.375 in / x ft .125 x = 34.375 x = 34.375 / .125

**physics**

Force up on block = rhoL *L * L * d * g where d is the draft or distance submerged that has to equal the weight of the block which is rhoB L^3 g so rhoB L^3 g = rhoL L^2 d g d = (rhoB/rhoL) L d/L = rhoB/rhoL but we want (L-d)/L which is 1 - d/L 1 - d/L = fraction above = 1-...

**differential equations**

for purposes of integration n k m are constant then ds/dt = -ks (s^2/nm - S/n -s/m +1) = -k [ s^3/nm - s^2/n - s^2/m + s] =k[ -s^4/4nm +s^3/3n + s^3/3m -s^2/2 + c] You can play with this perhaps http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?lk=3&i=plot++-s^4%2F4n+%2Bs^3%2F3n+%2B+s^3%2F3...

so weight = 4.11*9.81 = 40.3 N down Tension = 23.5 N up 23.5 - 40.3 = 4.11 a a = - 4.09 m/s^2 so a is down, weight wins
