Can you pass this test for seven-year-olds – half the population will struggle

Ahead of National Numeracy Day why not put your skills to the test and see how well you do at this children’s maths quiz.

National Numeracy Day falls on May 15 this year and aims to help make people feel more confident with numbers.
