    Jones, how far did you get on, say, problem # 3 before getting stuck?

    I'm not sure I see the point in giving the answer to every problem. I don't know math but shouldn't the answer to one be instructive on how to answer the others on his/her own?

    Hi Dgo, I know a little bit of math and you're absolutely correct. :) I hope that Jones is willing to chat a bit and explain where s/he is getting stuck with problems like these so that someone can best help him/her move past that point.
