Fatima Adamu Maikusa, a mathematical prodigy from Nigeria who is 14 years old, has established a remarkable record after taking home 7 medals in the subject in several international tournaments.
Fatima Adamu, who is presently a student at the Nigerian Turkish International School (NTIC), Kano, Nigeria, is originally from Gombe, Northern Nigeria.
In accordance with the information provided by her school, Fatima began her mathematics studies at the age of nine. She then goes on to win events like the International Eduversal Mathematics Competition in Jakarta, Indonesia, and the American Mathematics Competition (AMC 08).
Fatima Adamu also took first place in the Mathematics without Borders competition in Bulgaria, the Future Intelligence Students Olympiad (FISO), the International Math Challenge in Bangkok, Thailand, and the Komodo Math Festival in Indonesia.
I’m happy for Fatima Adamu Maikusa. Similarly, a 15-year-old British-Nigerian boy had discovered a new mathematical formula.
Chika Ofili, a little child, became one of the youngest mathematicians after discovering a method for quickly solving a number of division problems.
He was raised in London, United Kingdom, and went to the Westminster Under School there. He discovered it while working on schoolwork that his instructor had assigned to him.
During a break, Chika’s instructor, Mary Ellis, gave her a book titled “First Steps for Problem Solvers.” Many of the division problems in the book asked him to first assess whether a given number is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, but there was no standout test for dividing by 7.
Chika developed a novel technique to overcome division problems. It involves taking the final digit of any whole number, multiplying it by 5, and then adding this to the remaining portion of the number to get a new number. He discovered that the original number is also divisible by 7 if this new number is.
The approach, which was supported by algebraic evidence, has successfully altered how math is seen all around the world.
