Bunny, you should be deeply grateful for the help. I think ESC was going beyond the call of duty to give you this helping hand. Now, here's where you have to do your part. You must write your homework assignment much more carefully than you wrote your question, which had no capital letters at all, and no punctuation except for the dozen or so exclamation points at the end. (Trust us, one is enough.) It won't matter much to your teachers what you write if you write it carelessly Good luck.
