5. In a factory, the wages of 3 skilled workers, 4 security men and 2 casual workers is $350. The daily wages of 4 skilled workers is the same as that of 5 security men. A security man erans twice as much as a casual worker in a day. Find the daily wages of the skilled workers, security men and the casual workers.

6. When 5x³ - 2x + a is divided by (x-2), the remainder is 7. Find a.

7. Given that px³+9x²+qx+1 leaves remainder 4 on division by (2x+1) and 9x³+qx²+px+1 leaves remainder 3 on division by (3x-1), find p and q.
