1. Ok, first block of my math class involves Functions.

To say that greek is easier to understand then this is not an understatement. It's been 10 years since I've done "complex" math, and I was never any good at self teaching that stuff to myself anyways.

I'm kind of running out of time on this block to get my assignments completed, and I still haven't even really begun to get a basic handle of this. Anyone math wizzes out there got any tips?

2. OK, that was vague.

If you think that is vague you should see the work I'm having to deal with.

Functions are a mathematical equation that deal with a domain and range. Something like F(x) = 2x+1. But it goes way beyond just a simple equation like that.

I'm starting to figure this out because I actually had a few hours to sit down and just grind my nose in the books today. But suffice to say, the professor has given us absolutely nothing to work with in trying to figure this out and all of us in the class are scrounging the internet trying to teach ourselves how this shit works.

4. 4. Suppose you have a cookie stand, and when you charge \$3 per cookie box you sell 200 boxes. But when you raise your price to \$4 you only sell 120 boxes.

a. Write an equation for the number of boxes you sell as a function of the price you charge.

b. Denote "B" for number of boxes, and "P" for the price you charge.

c. Assume the function is linear..
That's one of the questions.

Edit: I'm not fishing for answers, just trying to show what i'm dealing with.

5. I am with you. I'm fairly good at math, at lest use to be in High school, now I've got a pre-calac class this semester and idk how well I'll do. I took Stats my first semester back, and OMG I did not get it at all.

Sounds like basic algebra to me....I'd give you the answer...but nah.:D
