Thanks for the kind words. A few notes about my posting in this forum. A few years ago, I posted in this forum often. I left eventually to respect forum guidelines as our site tried a premium model. We switched back to a free/hybrid model over a year ago. A few weeks back, I asked topsquark personally for permission to post in the forum again. He requested a few changes to our page structure to remove any language soliciting paid tutoring. I did this, and received permission to post. Just like a few years ago, my checks for posting are this:
1) Does any other site have the subject in question AND show the step by step math work like we do? If the answer is yes, I do not post
2) Is this a topic such as conversion which hundreds of sites have which is easy and cookie cutter? If yes, I do not post
3) If an MHF member requests a feature or asks me to build a new calculator, I do this.
So in response to the other thread about Google having calculators, I did not find any calculators with simple and compound discount which lay out the step by step math for you, hence the reason for my post.
I just wanted to post free resources which show all the step by step work. However, if forum members feel it's not valuable, I understand and will cease posting. I'm a fan of the site, and do not wish to ruffle any feathers. I share the same passion as others with respect to math tutoring.
