Okay, so here's the deal. I'm just learning why do we multiply by the inverse in fractions and I need help. What's the best way to figure out this stuff?

Calm down - it will be okay. The Algebra Helper software can help you with your homework. It makes your homework faster to do and easier to learn...so don't panic.

Picture yourself doing your homework. Sitting. Staring at the equation. Outwardly silent, but inwardly screaming, "Why?! Why doesn't this make any sense? I studied! What is the problem? Am I just dumb or something?" Many algebra tutorials teach you how to solve math equations that barely look like what you're trying to do. When you're done solving those, you're still left wondering how to solve yours.

Stop chewing on your pencil and punching the number keys on your calculator. There's hope. Take a look at the demo and see how incredibly helpful this program is. So, let me ask you a question…what are you waiting for? You probably could have done your homework by now and be out having fun.

I'm just not hitting why do we multiply by the inverse in fractions and need help. Is there anyway I can get help without having to go to tutorials? I need to figure it out at home.
