I can't do that. I have never been any good at maths, without my calculator I am up the creek without a paddle.

Re: Maths

10, 9 8, 7, 6 = 5 numbers RS ..... same as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 = 5 numbers.

5 + 5 = 10

I had the distinction? of being the only person in a maths test to get 10 out of 100 in my last year at school & I think the 10 was because the teacher felt sorry for me. I was then & still am now, no good at maths at all, though I do know how to give the right change.

I would have got -10! I suspect I might be suffering from dyscalculia, which is like dyslexia but where numbers are concerned not words!

Re: Maths

Strangely enough I liked maths at school but could not understand when algebra-trigonomentry- sign, co sign and tangents would be useful in later years, and they wern't, never used. What a waste of school time having those lessons

Left school as soon as I reach 15 years old and started an apprenticeship instead which even today allows me to fix repair make things apart from a mess
