    I was at work the other day setting out and we had to minus 670mm from 3370mm
    So I asked the apprentice for the answer .... a blank look followed "I need to get my phone out"
    I was in shock
    So I came home and asked my son and niece the same question..." about 500" my niece replies
    "I will get my phone out" my son replies
    What the hell are we teaching kids these days?
    Both my son and niece are not going to be rocket scientists but are currently completing yr 11
    Is it too much to expect kids to be able to figure out basic maths in their heads ?
