HAPPY Pi DAY EVERYONE

I really envy all those gifted Maths Geniuses out there.  I learned from an early age I was Number Dyslexic.  Not that I could convey that fact to my Elders though!!!  My Teachers despaired of me. English was a breeze but Arithmetic was a foreign language to me.  Don't get me wrong I can do the basics add, subtract and simple division.  Its when they started to put a story to the equations that all the problems would begin.  For example.  Four men dig a hole it takes them six hours between them. How long would it take six men?  I was suddenly transported to another world watching these six men digging a hole and and observing what colour their spades were and such!!!  "Mag-rose! Stop gazing out of the window girl!  My poor Teacher would bellow.  That would be the cue for the class swot to reach his hand in the air. "Miss Miss! I know the answer. I would heave a sigh of relief as she left me alone.  I watched dejectedly as he proceeded to enthrall the Class with his grasp of Calc.  I don't know where he is today probably a Nuclear Physicist at Cern! 
 
Anyway Pythagoras rules! :)
