    Thanks to -Mike Wescott	 mike.wescott@XXX.XXX  I have found an
    error in my calculation on  problem (3) I calculated the weight for the
    whole trip, thus  1530 lbs.   I should have subtracted 6 days which is the
    difference from Port Jackson (Sydney) to Wellington.  I just looked at the
    question in (3) and made the assumption the provision were from Sydney to
    The new calculations.
    [(8 * 1.75)* 64] *1.5  + [ (8*.75)*10] =1404 lbs.
    Now I differ from Mike's calculation by 52.5 lbs.  Although I made an
    interpretation  in the problem... I made an assumption that the 3/4 lb per
    day was per person which is an extra 60 lbs.  I though 3/4 lbs per 8 people
    per day was a bit wee.  So I could still be wrong.  But in any case thanks
    to Mike's answer I have now figured out where the provisions were put
    aboard.  :-)
    Learning the Hard Way!!
