A 12-year-old Nigerian boy, Chika Ofili has been awarded the TruLittle Hero award for discovering a new way to divide in mathematics. Chika discovered the new formula while solving a holiday assignment.

Chika’s Mathematics’ teacher, Miss Mary Ellis who is also the head of the mathematics department at Westminster Under School revealed that she gave Chika a book called First Steps for Problem Solvers (published by the UKMT) to study during the holidays.


The book had several divisibility tests that are used to quickly work out whether a number is exactly divisible by either 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 before you start dividing, but had no easy or memorable test listed for checking divisibility by 7.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
