Quantum Atomic structure questions

I need help with two problems that cover quantum atomic structure (quantum numbers, angular momentum, spin, etc.)
1. For l (lower case L) = 2 (a) what is the minimum value of Lx^2 + Ly^2

(b) What is the maximum value of
Lx^2 + Ly^2

(c) What is the value of
Lx^2 + Ly^2 for l = 2 and m = 1

2. Find the minimum angle between the angular momentum L (bold means vector) and the z axis for a general value of l, and show that for large values of l,
θmin ≈1/(l)^1/2

If anyone can point me in the right direction for these two problems I would very much appreciate it.
