I'll do it before 'Mock the week' does.

From the BBC website today:

"One in 14 adults cannot answer a maths question aimed at eight-year-old children, a survey suggests. The question was: What is one eighth of 32? The options given were a)6 b)4 c)2 d)8 e)None of these f)Don't know - the correct answer being b)4."

Isn't that amazing? 1 in 14 adults couldn't answer that question. That's nearly 20%!
