We all use numbers every day but very few people know how they work in theory. This quiz is actually quite simple if you know your stuff, though it will seem quite difficult if you don't.

Give it a whirl and see just how good you are with numbers. If you are a student, challenge your classmates and even your teachers! If you are no longer in school, see how much you remember and compare with what you remember being taught when you were.
