Your course is very, very, very dated.

Show calculations? These are done with tables, or a calculator, or a computer applet. Not even superman could do this calculating on paper with pencil.

I recommend you do it with this applet, getting the answer, then use your calculator to get the same answer, and finally, do it with the normal tables in the back of your book.
