Number jokes you can count on

I have a confession to make. I am terrible with numbers. Whether it’s trying to work out percentages or fractions, or even just simple addition and subtraction, my brain is slow to process the numerical information.

At school, I was more likely to be making up rude number-related jokes in maths class than attempting to solve any equations.

You might not think numbers are particularly funny, but you’d be wrong. Here are some funny jokes about numbers you can count on.

Q: What’s the best way to round up 37 sheep?

A: To 40.
