I am unsure on how to improve a question that was put on hold. Specifically, this question. The people that voted to close said that it is off-topic, and "not about mathematics", but I don't see how they could think that. The question is about understanding mathematical concepts and theorems, the first item listed on the page regarding on-topic questions.
It also stated that the question is missing context or other details. I think my thoughts are addressed on the problem in the question in the first paragraph. As for my own attempts at solving the problem, I haven't a clue where to start. Should I include that in the question?
