    I can help you with percentages- they become really easy if you just remember one thing.

    To find 10% of any number, move the decimal point one spot to the left.

    so, 10% of 100.0= 10.00
    10% of 78.0 = 7.8
    10% of 5618.0= 561.8

    And once you know 10%, you can find 5% (by halving your 10%) and you can find 20% (by doubling), 30% (by doubling and adding 10% on again) 40% (by doubling and doubling again) and 50% should be easy (you just halve the original number) etc.

    Remember to just move the decimal point one spot to the left.

    There endeth todays lesson

    So true!

    I actually remember being in target when I was in primary school and my mum taught me your lesson there Nomsie! I remember it like it was yesterday. They had a 10% off sale and I've never forgotten.

    I forget. Anything and everything. All the time.
    Sometimes I forget to unload the whole dishwasher, or take the clothes out of the dryer, or clean the kitty litter, or take out the rubbish.
    I don't understand superannuation, nor am I yet to try.
    I fail at maths. If I can't use a calculator, I use my fingers. Formulas go over my head, even some of the basic ones like fractions, etc (WTF is Pythagoras theorem?)I hate small talk and am incredibly bad at it.

    Oh I forgot to mention Geography. I absolutley fail BIG time at Geography, to an embarrassing degree. I know nothing about the world whatsoever, what is where and where is what. Absolutely no clue whatsoever. I have no common knowledge on most subject actually. If I was to play like a trivial pursuit type boardgame I would not be able to answer any questions at all. I'm embarrassingly stupid.
