Thank you for this explanation, Danny.  I thought there was a 
zero-tolerance policy on homework, not that we were supposed to give 
them more general help than a specific answer.
I agree my original choice of words was harsh.  It didn't sound that way 
to me when I wrote it, and I apologize to the OP.
It's also better that they tell us it's a homework problem than trying 
to mislead us, I reckon.
Anyway, does the Original Poster have any more questions or have we 
answered them all?
