AVERAGES - The representative from Motley Fool, joining lovely Aasmah Mir and the magnificent Peter Allen on the BBC's Five Live Drive, brought the radio audience the news that, on average, British citizens were £12 per week better off due to lower interest rates and the consequential lower mortgage repayments, somewhat lower food and fuel prices. He also conceded that some people found averages a difficult concept to appreciate.

He continued with an amusing explanation: "If you put your head in the fridge and your feet in the oven, on average you will be at the correct temperature."

If only explanations on averages, and other mathematical subjects, had been expressed in similar terms at school.
