Hello From Seattle

I thought I'd say 'Hi'

I'm 28, a business major (finance minor) and on my last math credit. I took a pre calc class about 5 years ago. I'm in Trig now and really struggling. Did ok in two different stats classes about a year ago, but Trig is beating me up. generally speaking, I actually really enjoy math, but this one is a bit overwhelming.

Looking forward to learning more though, hopefully somewhere I'll be able to make some meaningful contributions and give back to the community as well big_smile

Hi DuckDogTitus;

Welcome to the forum!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Hi DuckDogTitus and fractions-helper,
