Many people, perhaps most people, claim to be unable to do math. What they generally mean by "math" in this context is basic arithmetic. They usually base their self-assessment on their poor performance in school arithmetic tests. But does a low score on a school arithmetic test necessarily indicate a poor head for figures?
