2. What have you tried for part (iii)? Where have you got stuck rearranging the formula?

In part (iv), you can write the equation in the form y=mx+c (general straight line), where y is the quantity on the vertical axis and x the quantity on the horizontal axis. You're giving those quantities in the question, so once you understand the concept that shouldn't be too hard. The next thing is to work out how you could determine R1 by considering the properties of the straight line.
3. Just to add onto part iii

Try solving this from there. Should be easy enough

Tut tut tut
You have the values you need for the equation.
