  1. Hello, I am looking for a good math book that teaches all the basic fundamentals of math for an adult (myself). I dropped out of high school so I missed out on learning percentage, fractions, etc. I now find math to be very intimidating. I probably need to start from the beginning so everything makes sense as I progress.

    If you can recommend a book that also has worksheets to practice that would be lovely.

    Thanking you in advance,
    Mrs. Edwards

    When multiplying exponents of the same base, add them – y = 7
