I will not reveal my real name in an open forum but just wanted to say that I am happy to have found this math site. I am currently reviewing math learned long ago.

1. I am not a student. My last semester as a college student ended in December 1993. I am 57 years old. Yes, middle-aged and aging rapidly. Yes, old age is just around the corner. Life drags! What can I say? Our time on this planet is very short.

2. As you read above, I am not a classroom student and thus NO NEED to indicate in your reply to my threads that I should do my own homework. Homework? What's that?

3. Currently revisiting Precalculus on my way to Calculus. I wanted to study Calculus back in my student days. However, no need to take the course as a Sociology major in the 90s.

4. I live in NYC but I am not a fan of what the city has become in the last 30 years. I don't recognize this place anymore. I hate it here and hope to leave it all behind someday.

5. I have been playing solo guitar since the age of 9. One of my favorite hobbies when not working on math problems is playing solo guitar hymns. I read and write music notation. I also read and write guitar tablature. If there guitar players here, say hello. This is it for now.

Hi harpazo1965,

**Welcome to the forum!**

It appears to me that if one wants to make progress in mathematics, one should study the masters and not the pupils. - Niels Henrik Abel.

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.

I didn't know much before. Until your introduction, yes.

Let's keep our chat in terms of numbers and everything should work out. What else is a lonely middle-aged man to do? Math to me is like cross word puzzles are to many people. It's just a hobby. Revisiting Precalculus is not going to make me a math teacher or a math expert. It's just for fun and education. Come along for the ride.
