Guys , I am in need of aid on powers, radical inequalities, adding functions and roots. Since I am a newbie to Algebra 1, I really want to understand the basics of Basic Math completely. Can anyone suggest the best place from where I can start learning the basics? I have a class test next week.

You can check out Algebrator. This software literally helps you solve questions in algebra very fast. You can plug in the questions and this product will go through it with you step by step so you will be able to understand easily as you solve them. There are some demos available so you can also see for yourself how incredibly helpful the program is. I am sure your heath 6th grade math book can be solved faster here.

Hey there! I tried Algebrator last year when I was having problems with my college math. This software made solving problems so easy. Since then, I always keep a copy of it on my computer .

I remember having problems with radical expressions, converting decimals and least common measure. Algebrator is a really great piece of math software. I have used it through several algebra classes - Basic Math, Algebra 1 and Pre Algebra. I would simply type in the problem and by clicking on Solve, step by step solution would appear. The program is highly recommended.
