Geometry was actually my best subject in math! Which formulas exactly did you need help with? Is it circles and tangents? Triangle theorems? Tangent, sine, and cosine?

There is only one trick to math. You have to practice and pay very close attention to details. With these two tips I got myself through basic math, geometry, algebra then college algebra, trig, calc 1 through 3, physics, discrete mathmatics ect. The only thing you can do other then that is understand why you are doing it and what it all means.

For equations it is really easy. Most people mess up on not including the () every time you substitute a value into a variable for example; x^2 where x=-3 is the same as (-3)^2 not -3^2. One answer is -9 and the correct answer is 9.

Although, it is impossible to know where you are going wrong when you don't walk us through the problem.
