Now, maths is about finding answers. these answers are numeric, all the time. the hight of maths is technical things, so, that is why you need to use numbers or symbols to represent the factors of the sum. this means, if you understand the method of getting the answer, you will have it eventually or be wrong. i am going to show you how to simplify methods of finding the answer, and make sure you answer right.

If you were to observe the maths you learned in lower school, you will say it was much easier. it was the same thing. it is just now that new concepts far easier than typical primary school maths have been presented. remember how hard was learn your division? that is the same as seeing all those things on top of each other, the division with symbols - it is just a fancy x! remember how hard it was to do multiplication? powers are multiplication. remember how hard it was to do square roots this is the opposite of powers!

So, you can do it. all you need to do is concentrate, and, then fill the values in, slowly. once you have all the values, you will have a much easier sum, but, seeing as how they use the 'same values in the symbols,' it is just repetition.

Let's say you need to divide [x] by [3y]? the answer in it's simplest form is [x / 3y], yes? division comes from needing to fit something into something else, yes? imagine if you were to try to fit a 'cog' or 'swivel' into a engine? this would be where you would imagine them not being negative numbers, as the 'spokes' all fit onto something that will work, yes? how can it be negative? if you were to attribute each formula rather to a picture in your mind rather than to a few symbols on a page, it will be much easier, of course. all you got to learn for now is all the pictures that relate to each formula, then you will find it much easier.
