  George Osborne refused to answer a simple times table as a panel of children quizzed him on his maths skills.

  英国财政部长乔治·奥斯本在一组儿童测验他的数学能力时,拒绝回答一道简单的乘法题目。

  Asked to give the answer to 7x8 by Samuel Raddings, aged 7 from Manchester, one of the panel’s youngest interviewers, the Chancellor said he made it a "rule in life not to answer a load of maths questions".

  这组小记者中的一员,来自曼彻斯特的7岁的萨默尔·拉丁斯提问7乘8等于几。财政部长说他的人生信条就是不回答数学问题。

  Samuel helped out the Chancellor pointing out with no hesitation that 7x8 equals 56.

  萨默尔帮财政部长回答了这个问题,他毫不犹豫的报出了答案:56。

  The young interviewer from a panel of readers of First News - the UK's first national newspaper for young people - had previously asked Mr Osborne whether he was “good at maths”。

  First News是英国第一家面向年轻人的全国性报纸。这名小记者是该报的一名读者。他在此前曾问奥斯本财长的数学是否很好。

  The Chancellor said he had done a “maths A-Level” and had been “tested at school”。

  财长说他通过了A-Level数学,也在学校里参加了测验。

  “Of course there is a lot of maths in my job but it is also about making judgments about where the Government should spend its money”, he added.

  他补充道:“显然,在我的工作中有大量的数学,但主要是决定政府该往哪儿投钱。”
