When we were learning these equations and integrals at school, many of us thought that mathematics is not something we would need in life.

For better or worse, we were mostly right about it: most of that knowledge has found no application in adult life. That's why we are forgetting it.

Most likely, you won't remember how to solve equations like this: х(5х-26)=0.

But how about a task from a third grader's coursebook? Do you think you can solve the task that schoolchildren do a dozen a minute? Try! If you score at least 8 out 10 in this test, you can be proud of yourself!

We hope you were patient enough to finish the test, and you haven't got a headache from all these calculations!
