1. Hey, you have not even showed your attempt. I am sure you can do the first part.
You do not say if you know how to take derivatives. What is the second question?

3. You did not tell me if you have had any calculus. I do not like taking limits to find gradients.

putting in 5 and 4 and 2 and 0 and -t for x
and seeing what y is for each should not be too much for you.
