Survival Tip #79
Math is a bitch, but it is crucial to your survival. Just a few examples of how math is super important in the Primal Age are: Calories out vs Calories in, MPG vs Distance Traveling, Number of People vs Clean Water Supply, and the list goes on and on. Math might not be your strong suit, but everyone should have a solid grasp on basic math and be able to handle a decent amount of mental math. There are occasions where approximation is fine, but there are others where it will cost you your life. Solar powered simple calculators can last years (I still find twenty year old ones in the junk drawer that work) and are a solid tag along if math isn’t in your tool box.
