  1. #1. Each nested side is 1/√2 as long as the previous side. Use that to find the length of the nth nested side.

    #2. Since the last digit is 8, there are 80 of them: 18,28,...808
    Now you know the sum of the numbers from 1 to 80 is 80*81/2. So, you have 10 times that sum, plus 80*8, including all the final digits.

    a+5d = 2(a+2d)
    a+29d = 60
    solve for d.
