Where can I ask about networking homework/assignments? I've been told it's off-topic in Network Engineering.
I can't seem to find the appropriate place to ask this question, and similar questions did not ask about homework-related questions.
You're asking a 'theoretical' question on a site which is more focused on 'practical' questions. Instead, your question leans more towards Computer Science, which already has some questions about ALOHA. Whether your question is currently in the right form to ask there, I don't know. It's probably OK, but it doesn't hurt to ask a regular from that site, e.g. in their main chatroom.
