hi there

think both problems are best solved with number plug-in

1) c

(n-1)(n+1)=n^2 - 1

to check a) if you plug in 1, 3, 5 you get different r

to check b) if you plug in 1,2,4,5 you get different r

to check c) if you plug in 1, 5, 7, 11 you'll see that r is always 0

2) c as well (but not so sure)

for to check a and b separate the premisses allow to have z and m either with the same sign or with different signs

if you take a and b together the premisses allow you only to use the same sign thus you get an answer for m+z>0
