struggling with them logarithms


Why are logarithms hard? Just know that log_x(b)=y or x^y=b.. Its just another way of saying x to what power y equals b. Generally x will be base 10 on most calculators but you can have any base power. The more useful formula of logathrims is changing the base power where you can find Log_10(5)= Log_2(5)/Log_2(10)...this formula is very useful. As always practice makes perfect. You will soon learn math so enjoy it.


WELL EXCUSE ME FOR BEING STUPID XD

Partial differential equations, beyesian statistics, discreet mathematics, numerical analysis.

I did a lot of algorithm design, with formal proofs.

Calc bc covers calc 2. Certainly explains my pain.

I know a lot of math but I'm bad at it.

University math is the WORST. KIDS STAY AWAY.

I am horrid at Algebra, decent at Geometry, and plan to stay away from Calculus as long as I can.

I'm alright, but out of practice. I used to private tutor calculus.

I'm sure I'm rusty as heck. I never enjoyed math, though I greatly enjoy things you can do with it (i.e. physics ), and I had to take four years of it in college.

Strangely, I always had more difficulty doing basic arithmetic in my head than I have working with difficult equations. I can do it, but I'm slow (I never really memorized my times tables).

I like to think I would be good at it if I actually applied myself . Except anything geometry or trigonometry related, angles always throw me for a loop.

Its all just numbers, know how to shuffle em - get the answer.
But man do I suck at it.

I just hate the questions that read something a little like this;

Just let me use a calculator on the test for fucks sake, its only saving time.
You still need to know how to do it.

Mediocre at arithmetic, but good at logic, so I'm good at math as long as I have a calculator. I like things like geometry and algebra that require some mental acrobatics. I bombed when I got to integration in university though; I'd never had to try before for math, and the fact that I needed to actually study for it didn't sink in until the course was over.
