If I had an hour to save the world I would spend 55 minutes defining the problem and 5 minutes finding solutions

(Albert Einstein)

OK, let's try and sort this problem out once and for all. We really need to get to grips with the use or non-use of the definite article. Spend the necessary time defining the problem and then do the exercise.

I have read the theory, ideal, but when I have wanted to write down the solution,I'm not able to do it.

I agree with Ana, however I wrote the solutions in a sheet of paper and then I checked them.As usual it is an interesting link.Thanks.

OK, Ana, so define the problem. You must ask yourself why you are unable to do the activity or "write down the solution". If you can answer the question, you can solve the problem.

Hi, Mª Fernanda! You should be speaking in the plural - exerciseS! There are quite a few.

It´s a good tool for writings, moreover this link is absolutely necessary for the exam.

OK, Gracia, but especially because it is something relatively straightforward in English and yet seems to give you all so many headaches. Apply the D&C algorithm approach - those of you in the field of computer science should know all about this.

That´s a good post.
I´ve been doing the exercise which is profitable, but I have a doubt wheter is or not, it´s better no article?????

Get in touch with your classmates and ask them. Compare your answers, consider your versions and convince your peers; or be convinced - either way!
