Brainly is a place for students to share and explore knowledge together as a community. Our Honor Code does not allow cheating, plagiarism, or other violations of academic integrity. Remember, plagiarism is taking credit for someone else’s work.
What counts as cheating?
Brainly defines plagiarism as using someone else's words, thoughts, or ideas as your own. Students come to Brainly to get help from their peers. No one else can help them quite as you can, so please write your own explanations.
