I've pulled out my 2nd edition Elementary and Intermediate Algebra from MTH208, just to see if there actually is any hope left for this lump I call a brain.
I opened it to chapter 1: Real Numbers and Their Properties.
Sigh. Lost already.
NEXT LITTLE BIT LATER:
So, I've pulled out my notes from MTH208, blah, blah, blah, blibbity blah (good thing I kept them).
Now, I'm off to relearn math, my all time favorite pita (for reals ... nothing else gives me such agita working it out, then such satisfaction once I've done it).
