Homework

This helped me so much for my Math and English homework! I had to calculate the square root of the size of the Gobi desert, while using multiple geometrical techniques and using a special technique called 'BOMDAS'. This has helped me get a A+ on my Math and F- on my English! I honestly hate English, and because of my terrible grade, I got suspended from English for 2 weeks! I recommend this site to anyone who wants to get in trouble, or pass their Geography homework or exams or whatever you have.

    Thanks a lot, Gobidesert.org!
