10 Ways to Win a Maths Bet in the Pub
What’s the point of maths? To help you to win bets in the pub of course. The best bets are ones where your opponent thinks the odds are in his favour. Author and Broadcaster Rob Eastaway (as heard on the Ray D’Arcy and Pat Kenny radio shows) will be showing his favourite examples, ranging the newspaper bet to ‘special’ poker where you choose the cards, and giving the audience a chance to win some money off him.
Rob Eastaway graduated in Engineering at Cambridge University, but his real love was always maths. He has written a number of bestselling books, including ‘Why do buses come in threes?’ and ‘How many socks make a pair?’, and is regularly to be heard on radio talking about the maths of everyday life – including recent appearances on the Ray D’arcy and Pat Kenny shows. He has given maths talks to all age groups across Britain and Ireland.
