### Hello

Hello, obviously I'm studying mathematics. I have plenty of technical questions that would help improve my understanding. I appreciate any and all help. Thank you.

Hi knightstar;

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.
