    Which part are you stuck at? The first instruction is go to a website to obtain the required data. Are you unsure on how to do this?

    everything. I don't know how to do #3-7. I missed the lecture, and he refused to explain it to me when I asked him 1-on-1. It's not in the textbook and I've been searching online to no avail.

    #3 tells you exactly what to do. What part of the instruction do you not understand? If you missed a classs, you need to get the relevant notes from another student.

    I misspoke. I understand #3. It's obvious. Oops.

    Getting the notes from a classmate is not an option. That's why I'm posting here.
