I know this is a long shot and its terribly embarassing to ask.
I never finished high school. I got kicked out at the end of my sophomore year and my mom never enrolled me in another school. Now I’m working on getting my GED. I’ve gotten some work books and taken some pre tests to see where I am.
I’m great at language, writing, reading and social studies. So so at science. But whats killing me is math. I just do not get it. The book I have has the answers to the questions and tells you how to get that answer, but its just sinking in.
This is where the long shot and embarassing part comes in. I was wondering if there is anyone who is good at math and has some time on their hands that could dumb it down for me and help me understand.
For example, heres one question I’m stuck on.
On a map, the distance between Tampa and Daytona Beach is 5/8 inch. The actual distance between the two cities is 140 miles. How many miles would a distance of 1 inch represent?
MY BRAIN JUST DOES NOT GET IT.
