maths help


I've written these reminders of how percentages work to help people who haven't used them for some time. In particular, I hope they will help students who are suddenly faced with percentage calculations in numerical aptitude tests.

I've split the pages up in the following way:-

August 2003   What is a price relative? How various index numbers work

January 2003    Some examples involving ratio and proportion

I've started writing some more pages to help with basic maths, with these two pages being the first ones. Please let me know if you would like more maths help and what kinds of problems you need to be able to solve.

You can email me at (but leaving out the 'xyz' which is against robot viruses.) Don't send any attachments please as I don't open them.
