    I unfortunately was never taught how to do these types of problems. I got them out of my NCLEX prep book and was hoping to further prepare myself for the test.

    Well, this site isn't meant to have people do your homework for you. If you want help, work through the problems as best you can, show your work and the answers you come up with.
