Math is a real chal­lenge for many. Admit­tedly, cal­cu­lus takes some train­ing, but simple tasks such as addi­tion and sub­trac­tion may ocas­sion­ally be just too much. Per­cent­ages are anoth­er major obstacle. I meet almost daily state­ments that you can save as much as 5%, 10% or even 20% by some irres­ist­ible deal. The oth­er day Ryanair provided yet anoth­er example. They prom­ised me to save over 20% buy­ing six scratch cards for €10 when one card was sold for €2. What’s wrong you might say? Well, €2 off from €12 is not over 20%. It’s less — only 16,7%. So are Ryanair cheat­ing or just poor at math?
