    I am having trouble trying to make sense of some maths problems. Every time I think I finally understand, it turns out that I don't. If anyone will be willing to lend a bit of help, I would appreciate it. :smile:

    Give it a go here and let the collective assist.

    I was lousy at math in High School but 'got it' in college.

    Essentially, I need to learn three subjects in maths within... less than a week. ^_^;
    • Relationships and Calculus
    • Expressions and Functions
    • Applications
    Would you be able to help me out with these, Skytech?

    Hmmm, I'm afraid it's been 34 years since I made use of those maths. I'd need to dig out my old college textbook and brush up or, in this case, cram. I'm sorry.

    Algebra, trigonometry, geometry and pre-calculus in high school. Calculus and Biostatistics in college. I had a choice between Advanced calculus or computer programming in college and I was getting tired of math so...

    Here is a type of algebraic equation that is bugging me:

    0=x^2+2x+(-8)

    What is the function of the brackets?
