LONDON — Rishi Sunak loves numbers.
In a speech Monday, the U.K. prime minister vowed to boost numeracy among Brits, unveiled a new team to help him get there, and promised to take on an “anti-maths mindset” that, he argued, sees being bad with numbers as “socially acceptable.”
Fortunately, the genius POLITICO team feels the same way. So we’ve tasked our dedicated math desk* with devising this rigorous test, the outcome of which is legally-binding and will determine your life chances. Possibly.
