"Awesome. Thanks!" "Considering my classmates and I were out of our text on this one and left to rely on the internet for this, I am thankful for the additional instruction provided by Mr Schulte." "His careful explanations really helped 'gel' the subject matter and I more confident with the problem solving of basic probability word problems and equations." "First would like to thank you for your respond, If I'm to submit my homework tonight, should I include sheet 2 and sheet 5 in my submission? what do you think please." "Thanks for the help, cleared up my misunderstanding."
