Math Doesn’t Add Up

January 1st, 2001

“I’m a mathematical loser!

I spent 12 years of my life trying to understand and study it and after all this time I see that I’m not even able to answer to the 1st question in the end exams’ test part. And it’s just A, B or C.

Now I have 6 months to get ready for the exams at the end of my last semester.

What should I do, ‘cos I don’t understand anything from the pile of books I have anyway?”

Santa

Santa, it’s obvious what your problem is. Your teacher doesn’t understand mathematics either. Maths is all about numbers, but the question on the exam has A B C answers. That’s just nuts.

My advice is stick at it, and when you fail, sue the pants off your school for not teaching you right.

Lawyers who work on a contingency fee are very good at doing sums. They know that 20% of $10 million is $2 million, and that yours is therefore a case worth taking.

Good luck.
