Can someone please explain the Trinity to me?

I recently became a Christian. Now I'm struggling because I don't understand the trinity. How can 1+1+1=1? Why would Jesus pray to himself? I just don't get it. I'm not trying to start a debate but I was hoping someone could explain in a simple to understand way. The answers I get on Google are soooo complicated that it almost feel like they are talking in circles to avoid actually answering the question.

The trinity is confusing. I think it best to ask someone at you local church because many people fin it hard to explain. I saw in a movie once god is like a shamrock god is all 3 the father the son and the holy ghost. All three are on in the same god but each leave is its own. The father is not the son and the son is not the holy ghost ect. 

(  I would like to add I am not a christian at all nor am I atheist lol I did attend seminary though ) I hope this helps you even a little.

I even found an image on wiki. The link is here:

The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost..they are 1 and the same right. Jesus is supposed to be God on the flesh right...

Im not religious and really know nothing of it but from things i have read this is what i interpret the Holy Trinity to be.

This is every Christian belief outside of LDS and Jehovah Witnesses.

Think of it like a person with Multiple Personality Disorder. The main dude is God the Father, but he has two alters - the Son and the Holy Ghost. Those divisions/personalities may come forward and control/represent the main entity, but they remain only a part of the whole.

I was raised Lutheran and they definitely believe in the trinity as well.

Ok there is Jesus who is the physical aspect of God, and the spirit who was sent as the comforter after Jesus died. I normally just call the Holy Spirit the emotion the side of God. Then you have God who is the Father and creator. They are the same in the sense that they are all interconnected, they are different in what aspect of God they represent.
That's the easiest way to explain to me

Actually most of Christianity believes in the trinity, only a few denominations believe in oneness
