# Solutions to Difficulties in Learning Math

## Transcript

Hi, my name is Stefan. Today, I'm going to be speaking on solutions to difficulties in learning math. In learning math, it's always good to just try and simplify it and make it look more easy for you to solve and to figure out. Like, let's say for example, we have the equation eleven squared plus four-X equals one forty one. The first thing you want to do, is try and simplify it. Like see, this eleven squared, if you multiply eleven times eleven, you get 121. And this simplifies our equation now. And if we keep simplifying it even more, subtract both sides by 121, this cancels. And you get four-X is equivalent to 20. See, now that we simplified this equation, we get a much more easier, easier equation to look at. And it's much easier to solve than this original equation. And thus giving us our answer X equals five. So, it's always good to simplify.
