Can you help me with algebra?
First, I would ask a few questions to narrow down what exact help is needed. Is it a specific assignment? Do you need extra study help? Are you looking for additional worksheets to help clarify concepts? Once it's narrowed down, I would help you locate the resources or information needed to finish your assignment or study needs.

I am researching the Civil War. Can you help me?
First, I would ask a few questions to narrow this down. For example, "Are you having trouble navigating databases or do you need help finding accurate sources?" and "What part of the Civil War are you researching? Do you need information on fighting tactics between the North and the South, the impact of the war on specific areas of the country, the political implications of the war, or the after effects?" Once I narrow down exactly what help is needed, I would either provide help navigating sources and databases, or help put you in the right direction to find the information you need.

What are the three branches of government and their relationship to each other?
The three branches of government are Executive, Judicial, and Legislative. The United States Constitution separates power into these three branches, instead of having a king in a monarchy. The Legislative branch (which consists of Congress) creates the laws, the Executive branch (the president, vice president, and the cabinet) puts the law into action, and the Judicial branch interprets the law (through the court system). The three branches work together to create a system of checks and balances, so that one branch does not have more power than the others. Each one can change what another has done. For example, the president can veto (or reject) a law that Congress has created and not put it into action. After an initial summary, I would then help you find sources that could expand upon this question.
