    Here at National Numeracy, we're interested in how people's numeracy affects their financial decisions.

    As Old Style Money Savers, we're guessing you're pretty good at spotting a bargain, so it would be great if you could spare 5 minutes to take our short quiz on best buys, to test how good you are at working out the best value for money.

    The question on Bashmatti rice is wrong. Back to school for you.

    1kg of Bashmati rice at £1.80 500g of Long grain rice at 75 pence. How much more is Basmattii. It is 30 pence not 3 p.

    Obviously it is OP who is not numerate!

    Blimey, you lot are a suspicious bunch. Name and email address doesn't really constitute huge invasion of privacy issues. Use a throwaway email if you want to separate potential junk from the important stuff - that's what I do.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    It's given to people/organisations who need it - maybe to confirm an order or to contact me about a collection.

    As a result, I don't get calls about PPI, illness on holiday, accidents at work etc.
    I get very little spam in my inbox.

    Doing this online numeracy test just isn't that important to me to warrant giving out my personal details.

    It amazes me the amount of websites that insist upon a mobile number - presumably they think that everyone has a mobile phone these days. I only have a phone for emergencies, so if they insist on a number, they get given a string of zeroes.

    I'm not too keen to give my real name to something I'd only be doing "for a bit of fun" style of thing, either. At least with MSE you get to use a screen name.
