    #1 - look at the equations. They are all the same. That is, they are multiples of each other. So, (C)

    #2. (D) Did you check your answer to see whether it actually fits the equations?

    #3. (A) and (D) are the same, so I suspect a typo. Anyway, you want to get rid of the 8, so you know you have to multiply R1 by 8 and subtract R2.
