    I did.

    Not things like simplifying 1/2+3/4, but other things.

    Yeah I did. Although it was more mentioned in passing (as in pointing out it is the generalisation of the construction of the rationals from the integers) followed by looking at the the two binary operations on the field of fractions, as opposed to thoroughly being looked at.

    It takes 3 years of training to learn it. Sorry.

    Maths is one of the hardest degrees, you have to work hard and have great intelligence. I have to put in like 6+ hours a day for 10 weeks leading up to exams to get the scores I do, so a third is still okay. But good enough for what? As someone else asked.
