A new poll shows that a whopping 216 in 288 Americans have trouble simplifying fractions, a startling number to struggle with basic mathematics.

Just 72 in 288 people found it easy to simply fractions, the result of subtracting 216 from 288, the Hamster confirmed via calculator. The Hamster can also confirm via calculator that 288 is 12 away from 300, a number which would have made more sense to deal with our OCD in administering surveys.

This poll had a margin or error of +/- 72.
