Mathematical headaches? Problem solved!
Hi, I'm Colin, and I'm here to help you make sense of maths
Written by Colin+ in silly questions amnesty.
St David's Day! Any questions? What would happen if you put 20,000 leeks under the sea? How do you get two whales in a mini? That sort of thing. The sillier the better.
Colin is a Weymouth maths tutor, author of several Maths For Dummies books and A-level maths guides. He started Flying Colours Maths in 2008.
He lives with an espresso pot and nothing to prove.

I teach in my home in Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.
It's a 15-minute walk from Weymouth station, and it's on bus routes 3, 8 and X53. On-road parking is available nearby.
Almost fell into the pizza scaling trap! Fortunately, I remembered that a 10” pizza is really about 30% less dough than a 12”.
