Math Dunces!

England’s Math Dunces Baffled by Christmas Sale Offers!  “About 14.9 million adults in England do not have the maths skills expected of an 11-year old and may have problems working out even basic deals like “20 percent off” or “buy one, get the second half-price”, the Department of Education and Skills said.”  WTF!

    I imagine the same could be said of the majority of American citizens as well. Most people can’t make change, much less figure out how to take percentages.
