Hey Bing: Why is math difficult for so many people?

Math can be difficult for many people for various reasons. Some of the common ones are:

- Attention difficulties: Math often involves multi-step problems that require focus and concentration¹.
- Lack of understanding: Math builds upon previous concepts that need to be understood, not just learned¹³.
- Lack of practice or patience: Math requires time and energy to master and apply³.
- Lack of relevance: Math may seem abstract or useless for real life situations²⁴.
- Learning disorders: Some students may have dyslexia or dyscalculia that affect their ability to read, write or process numbers⁴.

Hey Bing: Tell me about equations and inequalities

Equations and inequalities are both mathematical sentences that relate two expressions to each other³. An equation expresses the equality of two expressions through the equals sign (=), while an inequality expresses an unequal relationship between two expressions using symbols like >, <, ≥, or ≤¹².

For example:

- 2x + 3 = 11 is an equation
- 2x + 3 < 11 is an inequality

You can solve equations and inequalities by using various methods such as:

- Adding or subtracting terms on both sides
- Multiplying or dividing terms on both sides
- Distributing terms over parentheses
- Combining like terms
- Using substitution
