But I will eagerly take up your advice and pepper you and the good folks here as and when I need some clarification. My son seems to have a natural touch (combined with hard work and a desire to get every question right) with numbers, although I do not, nevertheless I'm enjoying the journey alongside him encouraging him and discovering a road I never thought I could be or would be interested in.....Maths.

I'm happy with the next answer.
