Subject: Confusion regarding a homework assignment
Hello Professor X,
I hope you are having a good day. I was having a difficult time with one of the questions you have assigned for this week’s homework and I was hoping you would be able to clear up my confusion.
I don’t understand problem #12 on page 456 in the textbook. I have attempted to solve it multiple times, but I keep getting the wrong answer. I don’t know what I am doing wrong.
I can come to your office, if you would rather explain and clarify the assignment there, if it would be more convenient for you. Or you can respond to this email, whatever is more convenient for you.
Thank you for you time.
