    If you mean
    9/(5w) + 8/w then that is
    9/(5w) + 40/(5w) = 49/(5w)

    If you mean
    (9/5) w + 8/w then that is
    9w^2/(5w) + 40/(5w) = (9w^2+40)/(5w)

    #14.
    N = kS
    1.8 = k*20 (in M)
    k = .09, so
    N(S) = .09S
    N(180) = .09*180 = 16.2

    #18.
    N = k/P
    33 = k/42
    k = 1386, so
    N(P) = 1386/P
    N(77) = 1386/77 = ?
