Who hasn't felt it? The pressure? The overbearing presence of the silent room as you sit there staring at a computer screen or paper, just trying to get your brain to function. It's panic. Fear. Terror. And it's one of the worst feelings. Afterward comes the blame. Knowing the information and losing it in that moment.   I know that feeling, but there are tons of techniques out there... read more

Alright. Let's work through this. What I would suggest is separating it into dollars and cents. Take two, or even three parts and then add them together at the end. Each dollar accounts for 4 quarters. Then there is 75 cents. Simple part first. 3x.25 is .75. There's 3 quarters. Then the hard part...

This one looks really intimidating, but it's not that bad once you break it down. The perimeter of any shape is the length of all sides added together, and a rectangle has two sets of sides that are the same length. So we know the total of all sides is 34 inches, and that one side is 7 inches. By...

Let's picture a graph for a moment, at the spot where y intercept is (where the line crosses the y axis) x will always be zero, because the y-intercept is the line x=0   So let's do some substitution: x=0 g(x)=1/2f(x) (basically all this means is that g(x) will always be exactly...

So we have two functions: f(x) and g(x).   (f+g)(x)= f(x)+g(x)   All you have to do is add the two functions together.  5x-3+6x+2   Combine like terms and you're done.

Well, the terminology used here isn't really clear, but I'm going to assume that (gf)(x) is (g*f)(x) and not g(f(x)). If it is the first instance:   (g*f)(x)=g(x)*f(x) so we're just going to multiply the two functions together: (3x-4)(2x+5) Then we multiply the two expressions...

Think about it this way, if a dealer spends money the number is negative. If they gain money, the number is positive. It works well this way because it's pretty easy to picture money going out as negative and money coming in as positive. So in this instance, if you needed to show your work you would...

Everyone learns differently. It is a truth that is so evident every time I tutor. I find myself working with different types of intelligence every day. Do you know what type of intelligence you have? Have you ever been curious as to why you struggle so much for a passing grade while the others around seem to understand it immediately? The truth is (and this is the honest to goodness truth)... read more
