Here’s the original post. My question is simple. The post checks all possible boxes for Quality Standards:
- Formatting with MathJax
- OP’s own try
- Specific roadblock where OP seeks help
- Easy to read.
However the OP mentions that this is for a Math Quiz, which I presume is some sort of ongoing test (from the way the post is worded). I neither know how big of a “test” this is, nor do I have any information on whether the OP is allowed to ask for help ot not. I am hesitant to ask the OP, because if they are actually trying to get (non-permitted) external help, then we don’t have a guarantee that they will be truthful. The post has received one answer.
Should the answerer be told not to help for an ongoing test, in accordance with MSE policies? Or am I being cynical and prudish?
