I am 54 years old.  I can NOT do algebra for the life of me.  I only passed the high school test because after school, every day I would go into my algebra teacher and stay after school and try to learn it.  He passed me with a D to get out of the class ONLY because I had tried so hard.

Fast forward:  MY kids can do algebra.  While they were learning I really, really tried to learn once again how to do it.  Failed miserably.

Even today if someone were to sit with me, and I tried my hardest I can not get the concept of it.   Its beyond me.  And to tell you the truth I never have found a reason in my life to need it other then to pass my high school class. 

Your not alone.  Good luck.  I hope someway , someone will get you passed through the math portion .
