Hicks (2012, p. 158) states “what cannot be overstated is the need for journalists to be numerate as well as literate”. Well that’s a shame because I scored eight out of ten on my first attempt of the quiz. This isn’t ideal considering I am also studying a B. Business with an accounting major.

As my results showed, I struggled with this quiz and had to check the textbook several times for the correct answer.

On the second attempt, I gained 100 per cent… thank goodness.
