Start by finding your verb. What is the verb in that sentence? Then change it to a gerund. Then figure out the correct preposition to use: By To With Through These 4 will be pretty common, but there will be others.

mmh - the correct answer and spelling of "math."
I have no idea what Anonymous did. That answer makes no sense. x^2-13x+36 is the same as: (x-4)(x-9) Any number multiplied by 0 is 0. For example: 100 x 0 = 0 8 x 0 = 0 63655215777999400525 x 0 = 0 So if x-4 equals 0 OR x-9 equals zero, then we know that x-4 times x-9 equals ...

Yes. There is also debate about what to do if you are talking about a name. For example, if your name is Tony Jones and you have a family, people argue over whether you would say: --This is Tony Jones's family. Or --This is Tony Jones' family. Nobody can seem to settle...

I am sure a google search will produce a lot. Be careful of your spelling, just to be sure. I noticed you missed two letters in the words "you" and "about." You might want to use spell check to weed out the easier spellings, just to avoid confusion.
