Maybe it will sound rude but it's not my intention... You mean that
people not good in math means thay have hard time summing and
subtracting numbers that are not greater than 24? I can't belive it!

So this means that they are not be able to calculate at 5pm what time
will be if someone say them that something will last for 13 hours?

I wonder what happens to them when they have to check  a bank account
doing minimal house account and just calculating the rest when they
buy something in a shop... sorry but i wouldnet define them normal
people.. or you have to call me a genius i can solve equations etc...
and i can program computer!
