The exterior angle at B (CBD) is the sum of the other two interior angles at A and C. The two angles at B (CBD and CBA) form a linear pair. Looks like you need to review the section on triangles.

[3,13] has a span of 10 with 4 rectangles, each has width 2.5 So the distance is 2.5(f(5.5)+f(8)+f(10.5)+f(13)) You don't give the table, so if the given data points are unevenly spaced, that will have to be changed some.

just put everything over a common denominator: A/x + B/(x-2)+ C/(x+2) = (A(x^2-4) + B(x^2+2x) + C(x^2-2x))/(x(x-2)(x+2)) Now you want that to be identical to (x^2+12x+12)/(x(x-2)(x+2)) That means that A(x^2-4) + B(x^2+2x) + C(x^2-2x) = x^2+12x+12
