Is my perspective math correct?

This question was asked in November, has received 19 upvotes and been favorited 2 times, and a comment even says "+1 for showing that homework questions can be high-quality questions.", yet it doesn't have a single answer. I've myself stopped by it a few times, but never had the motivation to go all the way through the exercise.

What should we do about it? Does it mean even good homework question aren't a good fit?

    $\begingroup$ It certainly would be good to see this answered, particularly as that would show our site in a better light to newcomers. I know this isn't as good as an actual solution, but I've added a bounty. $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Aug 31 '16 at 13:07
  • $\begingroup$ The problem is that its made with matlab, i dont currently have matlab so i can not fix it even if i wanted to. All matlab questions get a long wait time on this site. We just dont seem to attract matlab users. $\endgroup$ – joojaa Sep 1 '16 at 19:26

Starting a bounty is always a good way to promote well-asked, but unanswered questions.
