### Hi Everybody!

I am new here. I am a returning student to school, trying to get my Bachelor's degree and I realized that I am terrible at math. I have forgotten how to do some of the most basic concepts that I learned in high school, so I'm here to re-learn. I find the site very informative and explains it very well. I hope to learn and make friends!

Hi Smoothie;

Welcome!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
