Well me I'm not . I'm slow in numbers I can do the basic but if you give me problems with lots of equations never mind . I know I'm not stupid, I can solve problems in real life too, but how in the world solving numbers are hard for me. One friend told me your not good in numbers but your smart on money. I know it's different I can be wise on spending money but literally numbers are hard to me.

I love numbers!
I can add and subtract in my head quicker than someone standing beside me and using a calculator
I'm not good with money though. I can add and subtract but I never understand why, when I go out shopping, I always come back with much less than I had when I left the house. Maybe because I don't just window shop?

Wow I'm truly impressed , I envy those who love numbers and can add and subtracts so easily in mind. I got head ache when I'm thinking about solving them.

I guess that I have problems counting money because I have never had very much available to count

i like math but not those that are really complicated like all these complicated equations. i don't have a hard time solving just as long as i have the formula

Mathematics is a science that I like much but, with the numbers, I am not very fast, to perform the calculations.What I like about math is that it is not an opinion but a certainty. In fact, 1 +1 = 2 everywhere and forever. If you are skilled with numbers, hardly come cheated.

It's easy to be good in numbers, you just need to practise more/daily and know the trick to be fast and good. If you are smart on money you will find out you will be good at number as well. You just need a different way (of learning/counting) to be good.

Maybe I'm not interested too either that's why I'm very slow, thinking only for solution I felt my head is aching .
I actually memorized the before but when it comes in solving it I can't figure it out.

I am not good at math. I wish that I was good at adding and subtracting in my head. I can do the basic things, but as soon as it gets bit more complicated I am really slow. I recently started playing a game on King, it is called Brain game and it includes logic, memory...and math. I am good at the logic games and relatively good at the memory games, but I am really bad at the math games. I have to add and subtract in my head, and I am too slow, so I never get a good result in those games Some months ago I joined a basic math course, because I want to get a little better at math. I have a very good teacher, but I still find it quite hard.

Numbers are really something that kind of give me a little bit of frustration. Granted, it doesn't seem like I am frustrated about it as some people, who would rather flee from math. However, I like to have a calculator in hand, because I don't trust myself to add numbers together right mentally in my head.
Math was one of those really frustrating subjects in school but also one that my performance was dependent on the teacher. I was a rather middle of the road student at that subject, with the direction that I went down the road depended rather on the teacher. Math was the subject. Numbers tend to really just cause me some amount of woe and that is just the bottom line.

Like a lot of discussions the creator has seem to have taken a trip. Oh well people still add another one and another one and 1 plus 1 equals two right? Not really. One plus one sometimes equals one if they belong to each other but if one goes one way and the other one goes another way you only end up again with only one. That would be human arithmetic while money math is easier. If you have - you won but if you donâ€™t you loose. What could be easier to figure out.

**Yes i am!**Well, now if i say something,people would think this to be silly- but this is how people would call me-

__nithy the calci!__(calculator in short) Oh that's just like "Bob the builder" in cartoons and they didn't get it proper though.There's another thing why they call me so.. It's because i always add up the marks before anyone else wanted to know their total and rank(we have a rank system here and i would be eager to know who got the first rank-it was not going to be me after all-maybe 4th or 5th in class-i would be!)So even before they tried to total upp their marks,i would and say you are 1st, you are last etc.So they would call me so. Yes i am comfortable with numbers.Not don't think i am bragging out there.That's going to be natural in me.I said it was fun that we had always.And i love this typing job and so i type i type i type.I am good in numbers.I could do simple sums as well as solve equations-math was the only comfortable subject to me after English.

Just like you I am not that good with numbers. Yes, I can count my money and work on my daily budget, but presented with mathematical equation, I am most of the time lost on it. I guess that is the reason why I took up communication arts during college. Aside from the fact that I have passion for writing, I consider that move as my escape to encounter math subjects other than algebra 1 and 2.
Also, some says that if a person is good in communication they lack the ability to work well with numbers and if you are good with numbers, you tend to view language and communication rather tedious. I am not sure if that is true but I think it has something to do with the left and the right hemisphere of the brain.
While I am pretty much satisfied with my knowledge in communications and language, I still wish I could work well with numbers though.

So far I like series of numbers and formulas. The reason why I like, it;s because in mathematics no need to study more and memories lot of things.
You only need to practice and no need to memories. As long as you are familiar with the equation and formulas you can come up with the right answer.

Well, i like math but it's not my favorite subject. And like you, i can solve simple problems fairly quick. But as i observe myself through the years, i can actually solve problems that are hard for my classmate no matter how hard it is if i had the feeling to solve it and give me some time which kinda long. But eventually i would solve it and my classmates woild ask me to teach them about it. I also did notice that i usually use my own method to solve the problems instead of using the method teaches to me since i found it easier for me because i can actually remember my method and always forget the teaches to me.

Oh my god,NO! I can do basic math and that's about it.When math gets a little bit complicated I start to get confused.It's not that anyone who is not very good at math is stupid.Einstein said "Everybody is a genius.But if you judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree,it will live its whole life thinking it was stupid." I,for one,am really good with languages and literature even though the subject of math is as clear as a mist for me.
