• ### How do I talk to my parents about depression?

I've been feeling depressed for a couple of years now. It has gotten worse over the past few months. I'm already planning on talking to a psychologist next week; however, since I'm still on my parents' insurance, I feel like I should tell them before I talk to a professional. The problem is that I don't really know how to approach my parents. They have always known me as a bright, happy person. I'm a bit afraid of how they'll react if I tell them I'm not happy. I feel like I'll be fine once I get the conversation started, but I don't know how to start. Is there a good way to bring it up, or would I be better off just asking, "Can I talk to you?" and bluntly saying that I feel depressed?

• ### Permutations in Mathematics?

We're working on permutations in my Pre-Calculus class, and I don't fully understand it. I tried working with some friends in class, but we all tried different methods and all got different answers. If somebody could help me with these problems, that would be great. Knowing the answers to the problems would help, but what I really need is for somebody to explain how the answers were obtained, and why you do it that way. Thanks in advance for your help!

1) The girls Amy, Ann, and Doris and the boys Al, Aaron, Bob, and Roy are in a nursery group. Determine the number of ways the children can be arranged in a line if a girl is always at the head of the line.

2) The diamond suit from a standard deck of 52 playing cards is removed from the deck, shuffled, and laid out in a row. Determine the number of possible arrangements if the first card is the ace.

3) Use the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 without repetition. Determine the number of ways to form the following arrangement: 3-digit numerals whose values are at least 100.
