1. 8+11+31=50 for 3 weeks and to get 150 cans you would need to collect for 6 more weeks.

2. Look for the pattern. The class started with 8 the first week, then added 11 for a total of 19 after week 2. Week 3, they had 31 cans. How many more is that than week 2? 12, right? Week 2 was +11, week 3 was +12, week 4 will be +13, for a total of 44, and week 5 will be +14 and the class will have 58 cans. See the pattern? You can do the rest from here.
