1.)
Because, I = q/t,
i.e.,
45A current means 45 coulomb charge pass throgh the given cross section in 1 second.

Therefore, the charge which can pass through the given cross-section in 3 seconds = 3*45 = 135 Coulomb
Because, ...

• " In question 2, you incorrectly add in the \$3.00 dividend that was just paid to determine the value of the stock price using the dividend discount model. In question 4 response, it should have also been recognized that dividend discount models are not useful if any of the parameters used in the model are inaccurate. "
