A year in numbers


Did you know: Only around 100 people have ever lived beyond a million hours (that’s about 114 years) – Around 7% of everyone who has ever lived is currently alive – The ’12 days of Christmas’ song, when sung in full, results in 364 gifts being given – one for every day, except Christmas. Broken down into 12 chapters that correspond roughly to months of the year – from going ‘back to school’ with arithmetic and times tables through prime numbers and all the way to the 12 Days of Chris-maths, this book features a collection of 365 fascinating numerical ‘nuggets’, accompanied by clear, bite-size explanations of the mathematics that underpin them.
