  1. It’s really a great and useful piece of information. I’m satisfied that you just shared this helpful info with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Actually the answer that says “thirtyone” is actually “thirtysix” so if you want to get it right then put down thirtysix because every teacher will tell you its 36.

  3. You’re the best man!!! We surely will get perfect on our group task!!! I hope I can personally treat you and thank you!!! I’m so, so, so happy!!!! Thank you once again for this!!!

  4. Perhaps including the answers publicly to an assignment is not of the best interest to teachers using this as a QUIZ.
