Look, I haven't done maths since 1987 when I left school, though now I'm doing times tables with my 6 yo twins.
But seriously, if you're not into your maths as part of your job or you have a pretty big interest in it, how is the question posed in this thread a "basic" one? Seems damn hard to me, frankly.
