    Yes.....you may not be aware of how things are to be done here. You are to ask questions for concept or things you are stuck on, not to blatantly have homework questions done for you.

    Choose one, or two topics you are having trouble with and ask a question about it. It helps if you have tried the problems first, and then put your results so we can assist you better.

    There are some extremely intelligent and talented people here answering questions....and I'm not including myself in that category.....so utilize that resource appropriately, and don't abuse it.

    More than half these questions have nothing to do with mathematics. I guarantee you nobody here will answer all this. Not just because it doesn't belong in math, but because, as said, we're not here to do your homework for you.

    Try working harder/paying attention in class and talking to your teacher/professor if you're having trouble with core concepts. The internet is not the place for asking stuff like this.
