$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

How do you do number 17? I can't seem to figure it out

I would use the method of initial rates that we learned about in Friday's 3/1 lecture.
An example would be to set (rate 1)/(rate 2)= (k1*[A]^x*[B]^y*[C]^z)/(k2*[A]^x*[B]^y*[C]^z) to solve for the order of reactant A in this particular where x,y,z=order of the reactants. Just plug in the values from the chart and you can solve for x.
