I Wish I Were Smarter

Math is a weak area for me. It irritates me that sometimes I have to write stuff down to work it out.

For example, when I look at a design or a spreadsheets, I can look at it and it’s obvious to me what the issue is. And I can resolve it in my head.

This post is from the Launchbar forum. Someone was utilizing the calculator and not getting the results that they expected.

One of the developers responded with a super-informative answer. As the developer, I know he’s already worked this problem out, but it’s an example of the difference between doing math and knowing math.

I feel that if I really knew math I could look at these numbers and tell the difference between an answer that is in Radians or Degrees or the difference between a common (base 10) or natural logarithm. Duh!
