Most people do not like math.

And according to my calculations, 86.58% of the people who say they like it, hate it!

and those who say they hate it, definately hate it?

When I play with my cousins, we always play "The adding game" with my deck of cards, and it is a math game because it involves basic addition skills. I have a girl among my cousins, she's not that good in math, but she made that game.

But, my cousins always hate math, and wants always Ninjago. I don't know why, too.

Not really. Not just English but your own language is just as important. If you can not speak or write you will not be able to convey your ideas to other people.
