This is the worst kind of homework question (Cutting and Pasting from the instructor's assignment sheet)

Normally, you can get help with homework by showing that you are making some effort. In extreme cases like this, I'll only report the thread for closure and tell you to do your own work.

If any of your first few posts are questions like this, it's a pretty certain thing that this is a "please do my homework for me" thread. Good questions and guess what, a search of the net will get you the answers in seconds. Whether you will understand them or be able to apply them in future is another matter.

Anyway, closed.
