You need to learn to generalize your knowledge. Some of the questions you ask are minor variations that can have general principles applied to deal with those variations. People here are very much willing to help with basic questions, but you need to show that you are applying some effort on your own. – Dennis Williamson Nov 2 '10 at 6:37
