Investment and Market Growth for Your Money. For your homework assignments, you should answer with a minimum of 3 sentences for each question. That means if you have two questions in a homework assignment, then there should be at least 6 sentences in total. You can write more if you’d like, but do not exceed more than a page, single-spaced.
