@iscream4juice,
Clearly you misunderstand the community on A2K. it is not an automated homework answerer.

We on A2K are people - NOT a program. if you want someone to do all of your homework, you're not paying attention to any posts. We are members just like you (only not quite as lazy)...volunteering help at our discretion...freely. You'll be likely to get some help as long as you're willing to show your making some effort.

Posting on a daily basis...dozens of questions...with no effort on your part, isn't what the community forum is about.

@Setanta,
I'm sorry, I am not a member of this website. But there are nicer ways to say what you said. That is a very inappropriate word choice. And just so you know these are students that are asking or seeking for help, they are not asking for inappropriate comments. So if you would kindly remove your comment, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
