I am better at arithmetic than geometry so I'm interested in numbers to prefer. I can do mental arithmetic quickly with 3 digit numbers. Also, I can remember the phone numbers, license plates, or any numbers that I look at once. Everybody seems to be surprised by my ability.

Panama canal is great

I am good with numbers but while I am listening the numbers in English I don't understand because it pass fast.I need to listen the numbers many times.

I can't hear the audios, they don't play.

Hello AzaelRZ,

There is a technical problem with our audio. I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for telling us. We are working on a solution and hopefully the audio will be working soon.

Best wishes,

Numbers are my weak pint, unfortunately.

As an engineer, I have to be good with numbers. We use them a lot in your profession. When we design or build construct something, when we made a research or material calculation. Math is an important tool in the engineer's hands. Of course, we don't need to do all this stuff like our precursors used to do - manually. We have computers but you still need to be confident with numbers ..... and computers as well.
So, I know it's hard to master Math and numbers but that's the way the mop flops. Don't give up folks - Math is great!
