Hi , I have been trying to solve equations related to pythagoras formulas but I don’t seem to be getting anywhere with it . Does any one know about pointers that might aid me?

What exactly don't you understand about pythagoras formulas? I recall having problem with the same thing in College Algebra, so I might be able to give you some advice on how to handle such problems. However if you want help with math on a long term basis, then you should check out Algebrator, that's what I did in my Algebra 1, and I have to say it's the best ! It's less expensive than a tutor and you can work with it anytime you feel like. It's not hard to use it, even if you never ever used a similar software . I would advise you to purchase it as soon as you can and forget about getting a algebra tutor . You won't regret it!

I remember having often faced difficulties with percentages, adding exponents and radicals. A really great piece of math program is Algebrator software. By simply typing in a problem homework a step by step solution would appear by a click on Solve. I have used it through many math classes – Algebra 2, Pre Algebra and Basic Math. I greatly recommend the program.
