5/4's of people in the world have problems with fractions, btw.
Well, unless you wanna rip yourself off via buying some funky derivatives it is not like you really need maths in everyday life.
As far as I know mathematics, music and chess are the only areas where true prodigies exist so I guess that the opposite must also exist. I am e.g. totally lacking any musical skills and I'd exchange calculus anytime for your voice.
