If I give you an equation will you help me try to figure it out? I use to be quite proficient w/math in grade school and just never used the modern math or algebra once I was out of K12, and now I'm struggling just so I can get a high enough score to qualify to take a statistics course in college.

You have tapped in to a great source of knowledge in this forum, of sorts. Feel free to ask your questions here. If it has been a while since you have taken any math, I would recommend you consider taking some lower level math classes before you jump in to anything too involved.
