Well respectfully sir its not a circular fallacy, its just the fundamentals of basic maths.

After talking to a couple other graduates of college whether it be with backgrounds in Engineering or Business or Psychology where Calc isnt even used they all get the same answer of 1.

In that regard it is pretty nuts that people have this huge gap in how to do math and what the proper way is.

For me personally math was hard and difficult because I am dyslexic and well I had to pay extra close attention and work a bit harder than more talented and gifted students to really understand math.

Really had to pay extra close attention and really had to focus a lot more. Sometimes I would go 2 or 3 days without sleeping just studying, doing the work, going to the math lab more than regular kids, spent like 400-500 hours in math lab every semester, study with friends, email the teacher and just do it over and over again and really soak it in.

Doing math improperly was not an option never ever ever. I couldnt afford the luxury of being wrong hell I couldnt even afford the luxury of buying the books and had to Xerox my way through college renting out from the library or asking kids who had the book to let me borrow it and things like following the properties of math and order of operations were so important even more than the many equations I had to learn and now forgot because it was just the fundamentals of basic, higher or any Math that were so important no matter what Math I was set to do or had to do, the fundamentals and basics got me through it and they are pretty ingrained in me so deep I didnt even know or realize how much so until this equation

In math there are so many things to learn and go about it and its so important to adhere to the basic properties of math but also to understand them and really know why they matter, where they matter and how they matter to do math as it was meant to be.

In any event I definitely feel math is a pretty beautiful aspect of life, nature and the universe IME and IMO.
