Welcome to the forum.

I am glad you chose to convert away from being a math illiterate. Math is awesome!

]]>**Welcome to the forum!**

I am an ol'skool software developer (ol' as in 1653 AD) from NL who came accross 'mathisfun' when looking for a simple explanation of y=mx+b.

You have to know that I was terrible with math at school and somehow never grasped the scribbles my teachers wrote on the blackboard (what on earth is that?), which they called 'algebra' or 'trigonometry' or something along those lines. (Imagine how blissfully empty my head must be...)

It took me about 2 months to understand (scratch that, instead: learned to use the formula without comprehending) the 'definition of a straight line'.

Now I use y=mx+b on a daily basis in my CSS for the webpages I create. Each time it works like a charm, if only I knew its purpose....

So, now you know.

Cheers!!
