Hi, I'm Libby, and I'm obviously very interested in Maths (hence why I'm here, hehe). I live in the UK, and I'm currently doing AS levels which include Maths and Further Maths. I found these forums because I was feeling a bit mathematically isolated, and I don't feel like there's anyone I know my age who I can relate to and talk to about the subject (always having conversations with my Maths teacher, but it's not quite the same), so I figured this was a good place to meet like-minded people.

I'm a little bit of a statistics nerd, and anything involving general human misuse and misunderstanding of probability I find very interesting. I also like puzzles where I can hear about all the different ways people can solve them with a bit of ingenuity.

And that's about it. Basically, a very long way of saying hello, hehe

Hi danesbury;

Welcome to the forum! I like probability too.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
