Intro to Organic Chemistry HW Section 4.3 #29 and 30

In #29, how do you know that the reaction is exothermic? Is there a way to tell?

In #30, how do you approach this problem? How do you know whether or not a reaction will occur at room temperature if you're given the activation energy?

On page 154 of the organic textbook, it says that a reaction will only occur at room temperature if the activation energy is about 80 kJ/mol or less.

I believe for #29 you know it is exergonic from previous examples in class and in the course reader since it was used/discussed multiple times.
