    RoA, we are absolutely not here to just do people's homework for them and then provide all the answers. It's their work and they should show an attempt to do that work. We are here to then guide them, not just give it away to them. I'm sure there are plenty of examples in the book, and if they didn't understand from the examples, they won't understand just looking at answers you provide.

    It's sad that I also have to keep explaining to people that it's unethical as well.

    Please don't do this again.

    BOTH of you need to read the guidelines about posting homework problems:
