Brain Teasers
How many times have you been inside a maze and find it too difficult to find the middle? Well, with our fun-filled Maths is Easy book, we can provide you with an answer!

The Secret of the Maze!

Enter the maze and put one hand on a wall. It doesn’t matter which hand you use, and it doesn’t matter which wall you touch. Now, just keep walking without taking your hand off that wall. In other words just keep following the wall you are touching. You will always end up in the middle of the maze. It won’t be the quickest way to get there but it always works. You can get back out by doing the same thing – just follow a wall.
Pie Charts
In our Maths is Easy book we provide step-by-step instructions for every question! Written in conjunction with a Qualified Maths teacher, we have done our upmost to ensure you with the most accurate and easiest methods of completing mathematical formulas and arithmetic’s. Let’s look at Pie Charts for an example:

Here is a list of countries to which some of the past prize winners for medicine have belonged.

Germany Netherlands Austria Denmark Sweden Italy Britain
10 winners 3 winners 5 winners 4 winners 4 winners 2 winners 17 winners

Now, how do you put all this information into a pie chart?

If you add together all the prize winners you will find there are 45 of them. (17 + 2 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 3 + 10) Each winner must get their fair share of the pie. The pie is a circle and a circle has 360 degrees in it, so we have to divide 360 into 45 equal slices. Use a calculator, if you like, to work out 360 ÷ 45. The answer is 8.

So each winner will get 8 degrees of the circle.

The CROSS looks like a multiplication sign and it tells you which numbers to multiply together. One arm is saying ‘multiply the 1 by the 2’ and the other arm is saying ‘multiply the 1 by the 3’.
Finally, add up the numbers above the line.
Dividing Fractions
This may sound like really difficult, but you will be surprised how easy this can be if you follow a few simple steps! Mathematicians realised that maths really can be made easy. They realised that when trying to divide fractions, they found that if they turned the last fraction upside down and changed the divide sign to a multiplication, they got the correct answer – every time!
Last fraction turned upside down and ÷ changed to x
Done! That is the answer, although it can be simplified to 5 / 6
