I need some help on my homework. I've been procrastinating on it. Yeah, my fault and all that. Still stands that I'm on the clock and I have a lot to do.
I would appreciate some help on these questions. I will edit and post what I do know, but I would love some extra help, and I like to elaborate on my answers. I know, I know, I should be doing my own work and blah, blah, blah, but I'll be putting it in my own words anyway.
I don't expect you to help me, but I figured I may as well ask. I would appreciate any and all help on my homework, including help on where to find help. I'll post the finished product if you like, as well. All advise or information, no matter how little, is welcome. Thank you for your time.
