Comparing 1&2, doubling B quadruples rate, 2nd order WRT B.
Comparing 2&3, doubling B (again) should make rate x4, BUT it is x8, i.e. something has made rate x2 bigger than expected! Since A has doubled, it must be 1st order WRT A.

Why A is first order? I still don't really understand

Comparing 2&3, [B] has doubled and since we know it is 2nd order WRT [B] rate should be 4x what is was in expt. 2, i.e. 12.06 (12.1 3s.f.). BUT rate is 24.1 in expt. 3, i.e. 2x higher than it should be! What is making expt. 3 go 2x faster than expected? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that [A] is 2x bigger? Since [A] = 2x and rate is also 2x, it must be 1st order WRT [A].

Do you understand what the order of a reaction means?
