OK, so I haven\’t actually done this test.
But I know how I\’d do each of the questions with pen and paper, or with mental arithmetic. Most of it\’s pretty simple.
And percentages are easy to anyone who has ever worked as a waiter (calculating that tip!).
Except for questions 13 and 14. Haven\’t a clue. I would get all of the others right, no doubt about it. (Well, alright, I might make an error which can happen to anyone but I know what\’s going on at least.) But those two, wouldn\’t even know where to start.
I sorta, roughly, know what a log is. But how to manipulate them or calculate with them? Not even a chocolate button of an idea. I assume we must have done them at some point on the way to a maths A level and an economics degree but it certainly didn\’t stick.
