    Any suggestion, to work around this problem?

    And be serious arun, no bullshitting.

    I messed up when spelling calculus.
    I'd say no.

    Computer programming is much like algebra, you're basically writing an algorithm.

    If I said write me an algorithm that generated 3, 7, 11, 15, 19, 23, 27... sequentially, if you are mathematically inclined enough, you'll recognize it's just 4x shifted over 3 places, e.g. the algorithm is f(x) = 4x+3. Computer programming is just writing an algorithm in a more complex structure, involving characters, strings, arrays, matrices, etc. You're commanding the computer to do a set of instructions, which more times than not is translated into a math formula, because computers are great at one thing, solving math problems. To make the program however you need to be good enough with formulas that you can translate instructions and formulas back and forth and be able to "run" the instructions in your head when bugs happen comparing expected vs actual output. So no, while algebra is basic on the tier of math skills required, it's not so much as level of difficulty as it is proficiency.

    You're free to try a computer class early, just to see if you like what you put your hands on. I'd say you're not going to like it. Find something you are good at, you enjoy doing, and if you weren't going to be paid for doing it, you'd still do it for free, and make a career out of doing it.

    I see what your saying. Right know I am going to community college to get the generals out of the way. That will take about a year or so, and I will also take a computer programming class there, I will see how it goes. If things don't go the way I plan it to, I will find a different path I could take, but Idk what the hell i am good at right know .

    Not sure about c++ since I've never used it but for one of my finals I had to write a program that accurately depicts many of earth's physics so that involved what you consider to be advanced math. Imo, calculus helps a lot in programming, at least in what I've had to do so far.

    Well I think I might take calculus, because lots of people are saying that is important. As I said Algebra is ok, but I suck at physics. Idk how I will do in calculus. Hopefully I am better at it.
