Sie sollen ihn nicht haben,
Den freien deutschen Rhein !
So lang sich Herzen laben (refresh)
An seinem Feuerwein.
So lang in seinem Strome
Noch fest die Felsen stehn,
So lang sich hohe Dome
In seinem Spiegel sehn.
Sie sollen ihn nicht haben,
Den freien deutschen Rhein,
Bis seine Flut begraben
Des letzten Manns Gebein.

7 6. At two stations, A and B, on a line of railway, the prices of .coals are £p per ton and £q per ton respectively. If the distance between A and B be d miles, and the rate for the carriage of coal be £r per ton per mile, find the distance from A of a station at which it makes no difference to a consumer whether he buys coals from A or from B.

Having found a formula, assume any numerical values you please for the quantities denoted by the above symbols, and verify the formula. 7. A man has 40 shots at a target. Each time he makes a bullseye he receives a shilling from his friend A ; each time he misses the target he pays A sixpence. If he puts a shot on the target which misses the bullseye, he neither pays nor receives. The number of times he does this last is greater by five than the number of times he makes bullseyes. On the whole he loses Is. 6d. How many bullseyes does he make?
