6. If a student keeps asking similar questions the student needs to look at earlier replies and try to do the next one without help Jack. We can then check the answer but just telling the student how to do it time after time helps not in the least.

9. I also thought the same as the person who did 36/4=9 and 24/9 would give me the answer. I wasn't sure either but it's the same answer either way.
