    there are other expressions in "with"
    - I have a computer with a problem
    나는 문제가 "있는" 컴퓨터가 있어.

    난 마리(Mary 를 발음대로 적은것) '와 함께'(with) 학교로 걸어 갔어
    heres the problem, i would translate with to korean as '함께' but
    if i say 난 마리 함께 학교로 걸어 갔어 is wrong
    you have to add '와' between 마리 and 함께
    also, '와'(this '와' theres other '와', dont confuse!) means with

    so you could say

    난 마리와 학교로 걸어갔어. (O)
    난 마리와 함께 학교로 걸어갔어. (O)
    난 마리 함께 학교로 걸어갔어. (X)

    내가 너의 숙제를 같이(with) 도와줄게.

    난 젓가락으로(with) 먹었어
    but this one is, kind of not right.
    you hae to say
    i ate it using chopsticks
    난 젓가락으로 먹었어. is right thing

    i think i kind of messed up, reply to this one will answer asap : )
