I need help with this homework problem regarding cholesterol synthesis. It is as follows:

Cholesterol is an important component of cell membranes. Describe the steps that take place in a cell during the synthesis of cholesterol molecules that are found in the plasma membrane. Be sure to include the names of any structures and organelles that are involved in the production of cholesterol.

I just started taking general biology so I don't know much about synthesis. Any help would be appreciated.

there are many websites on this.
I am not sure what you want?

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

When answering metabolic pathway questions like this put extra emphasis onto control points; compounds that can be converted into multiple products and/or enzymes which have their activity tightly regulated.
