    So I've become quite interested in maths lately but there's a problem I can't stop thinking about. Maths really is all about thinking and coming up with solutions to problems. However, sometimes I just can't come up with a solution myself. This is especially true when watching videos on YouTube that look at things like what is the square root of i. Now in this case it may be that I just haven't learned enough about complex numbers etc to even consider doing this myself. However, I guess my question applies to material concerning complex numbers and all of maths. When is it alright to give up and let someone show you how it's done? Do you feel as if you're missing out on something?
