Description

Maths is a part of everyday life and there's no denying it. For anyone who hated the subject at school and has blocked distant memories of complicated algebraic formulas or incomprehensible trigonometry and logarithms, numbers can strike fear at your very core. It is, however, an unavoidable part of adult life, so why struggle through without a clue? Sodding Sums can be your solution to everyday problems, it will substract stress and divide difficulty meaning you'll never feel lost and helpless when faced with maths in the adult world. Hywel Carver is not just passionate about maths, he is determined to make it approachable for anyone who feels terror at the very mention of fractions and percentages, mortgages and loans, or probability and gambling, let alone weight conversions and tax calculations. Sodding Sums will be a go-to-guide for anyone that's ever struggled with converting grams to ounces, or wondered if a good deal in a supermarket is really as soon as it seems. With handy arithma`tricks', tips and shortcuts, as well as covering specific situations such as betting odds, Hywel will cover any mathematic problem which is likely to get you scratching your head in confusion and frustration.
