The numerical jaffa cake

Standard

Unlike Macavity, I’m no good at doing complicated long division sums, so when my calculator broke there was a lot of muttering and counting on fingers and finally scrabbling through the stocking-fillers of yesteryear.

The tiny buttons are very fiddly to use, as the whole thing is just the right size and profile to be a jaffa cake.  But luckily it is rather better than the average jaffa cake at arithmetical calculation.

  1. As an erstwhile Maths lecturer, I can suggest that even the average Jaffa cake is better than most people when it comes to arithmetic. Oh, I don’t mean that, what an awful thing to say.
