Hey <khaye>,

Following attachment is my worked solution for Q1. Kindly note the answer should be 45, and not 54, as stated in your post.

As both questions are similar in nature, do let me know if you are able to repeat the method for Q2 yourself.

Do let me know again should there be further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
