  2. If you get your answers off of this site or others like this double check your work. Just because they are on here does not always make them correct. I wanted to do a little reasearch on an assignment I had and came across this site I started double checking my answeres because they were diffrent than the ones on here. I found some of the ones on here to be wrong.
