Greetings. I'm trying to make up for my not quite stellar High School math preparation by teaching myself Geometry. I'm strongly considering giving up and just doing independent study rather than wasting so many years of my life trying to solve Algorithms with mostly forced uses just for a damn Engineering diploma when I don't even need one for Software engineering, and I'd still need to learn programming on my own. It's gotten to the point where I can't pay attention to classes. INTEREST is everything. My most current problem is, I simply don't understand this logic (see included PDF, example 3). I might be high on caffeine or something, but in addition to not understanding how the author got this formula or the logic behind it, I didn't even get the same result as the example. Should I switch to cold water instead?
