And I if I don't get at least some instructions on how to do it Correctly, then I would put what I think. And I am sorry if I am disrespecting you.

  7. As Writeacher wrote: "You need to indicate what you are stuck on, and then the math tutors will know how to help you." Tell the math tutor what confuses you or ask HOW to do the problem, and I'm sure a math tutor will be glad to help. Just posting the problem does not tell us what you need.
