Did you do all of that for your homework?  I understand the Socratic method
of inducing people to learn by walking them down the path and making them
figure it out for themselves, but I did already try to do those conversions,
but it was messy.  I would love it if you would post your results for this
exercise, since I am so very close.  Thx either way.
