There are different w ays of finding the answer to any Mental Maths problem, and such strategi es are the focus of this series. Even though calculators and computers p lay an enormous role in the modern world, we still need to go back to th e basics % we do need to know how to check that the sales assistant at the counter is giving us the right change!
