I've asked this question. Until now, it has 3 votes to close, but I'm having a hard time understanding the reasons given.
What can I do to improve this question?
I see two issues. First, two of the close votes indicate that the question is missing context. While many (including myself) think this reason for closing is way overused, it wouldn't be hard to say something about where the question came from. Why are studying it? Is it an exercise? If so, in what text? Did you formulate it yourself? If so, how and why?
Also, I notice that you drop a second question almost parenthetically. If it's related, you should explain that clearly. Otherwise, another question is probably more appropriate.
