    Smile help


    Have been trying to help my daughter with her english and have come upon something that i`m unable clarify for her. Maybe someone can help.

    The problem is with WILL and WOULD. Examples: If you eat less you will lose weight. If you ate less you would lose weight.
    If i win a trip to china i will visit the great wall. If i won a trip to china i would visit the great wall.

    Are theese examples correct? Is there a rule which applies to this situation and if so could you please explain.

    Looking foward to some help.

    Cheers John.
