I am having trouble my music theory homework. I don't quite understand how to draw intervals like on the treble clef. I know how to write perfect 4,5ths and octaves. Now if I gotta write a major 6th of a minor 3rd im lost. It seems so easy and I think im just second guessing myself.

Any help or a linking to where I can find what I need?

For the second example you would just find the minor 3rd then a major 6th from that minor 3rd.

Have you gone over 2nd 3rds 6ths and 7ths yet? You are going to need to know that because those operate a little differently than the prime 4th, 5ths and octaves.

M3 is always on the next space of a space or next line of a line.

That would be a generic 3rd
They put our homework on powerpoint slides and we move the notes above or below the specified note. So like I have 4 notes on the treble clef and it gives me the name of the 4. Major 6th, Minor 6th, Major 6th, Minor 6th with sharps and flats below if needed. I just can't figure out which need a sharp or a flat!

Thanks for the help so far!

You lost me now, I have no idea what your asking. Care to explain it differently?
I'm guessing this is all in key of C since they no keys with it. So my first slide is talking about 3rds. F (maj 3rd) G (minor 3rd) C (minor 3rd) E (major 3rd).

We have 4 notes placed on a treble clef on a power point slide. Below the note is another note you drag to the correct spot for the specified interval (lets say major 6th). Then a flat and a sharp below to drag next to the note if needed.

Nah key doesnt matter in general.
F M3> A This is because in a F major scale A is not sharp.
G m3> Bb Because in a G minor scale B is flat.
C m3> Eb. In a C minor scale E is flat
E M3> G#. because in a E major scale G is sharp.
See what i did there?

Wow finally something I can understand!!

So now G (major 6th) it be G M6 > E
and G (minor 6th) G m6 > Eb

right?
