Can Someone Please Help Me?

I’m stressed out over my chemistry class already. And I’ve only been in school since Friday. *dramatic sigh* We’ve already started doing math stuff, which I don’t understand. Ugh. I have a bad feeling I might fail that class. I’m seriously considering dropping it at the end of this semester.

Anyway! I need help with my engineering work. Here it is:

Problem: Create a device that can transport a clothes pin 10-15 ft.

Material: 1 clothes pin, 2 rubber bands, 1 balloon, 2 paper clips, 1 straw, and masking tape.

But the problem is, I have no clue how to do this! And the rope is completely horizontal. And none of its making sense to me. Today in engineering class wasn’t too great. My teacher gave us a worksheet with ‘simple’ math on it, and oh boy, let’s just say I’m not the best at math. I got frustrated because I’m horrible at math. Luckily, I know a kid in that class and he helped me out some.

But yeah, can anybody help me with the project? I’ll read/comment on all your stories, aha. No, but seriously.

I just can’t wait until the weekend so that I have to relax. School is killing me!
