Re: Hi everyone

Hi nevinsmith;

Hmmmm, that is about what age I learned it too. Taught myself. We did not have forums or computers back then, or paper and pencil. Just a sandy beach ( which was clean back then but full of sharks ) to write on and some smooth stones to count with. You will be expected to do a lot better!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
