wondering why you stop @ question 71 for solutions, when the text books has 94 questions?

Hi missedinger, that's a totally fair question, which I've addressed in the FAQ: It would be enormously time consuming to also answer all the "General Problems" so I'm limiting coverage only to the regular "Problems", of which there are still more than 1700. If you need help with a "General Problem", my suggestion would be to try and find a regular "Problem" that is similar to the "General Problem", and see if you can apply the same problem solving technique.

All the best,
Mr. Dychko
