They start at the point you got lost and build your confidence from there
I am also made of hands
As long as we're talking 'scared' and not scared.
Do you mean to tell me that 9.999recurring doesn't actually equal 10?
Sum i from 0 to infinity of 9 x 10exp-i = 10
...oh. Of course.
Pretty retarded at most maths, and scared of percentages. am good at mental arithmetic. i have a google thing that stops you sending drunken emails and i have successfully got to the point of solving six 'tough' maths sums within 60 seconds. Good at mental arithmetic, bad at self-control.
and fight self imposed googly maths by using google's calculator to solve google mail's questions?
And do you ever send drunken equations for people to solve? Enquiring minds...
9/9 could equal anything.
So there we go.
