  4. Orb Spartan says:

    Im a sophomore in high school and the teacher writes everything so sloppy and goes too fast. You explain it very carefully. Now i dont have to worry about failing my semester exam. Thanks man!

    I feel like we learn better when we watch videos then being taught because we are desperate and want to know how to solve said problem and so your brain (MAYBE IM NO SCIENTISTS)goes into ultra learn more and helps us understand better

  15. Bob Dull says:

    Thank you so much. I cant see the board even when siting in the front of the class, i had so much trouble and you made my life so much easier

  26. Asad says:

    i only have x and 45° but that’s it. idk what to do. there’s also a triangle on top of it that has a leg of 7 and 60°

  27. Olivia Busiello says:

    Wait is the 45-45-90 always gonna be an isosceles right triangle since the legs will be the same? I’m going into eighth and I haven’t learned this yet 😛

  28. HoldenVlogs says:

    Thank you so much! This makes so much more sense!

    this is helping me so much in qurantine

  32. Shaq LaVine says:

    You’re an absolute legend Mario!

  33. RorysonTV says:

  34. Love Invalid says:

    Thanks man
