A 12-year-old Nigerian has made history after making a new discovery in the field of Mathematics.
Chika Ofili, who is based in the UK, was awarded over the weekend at the TruLittle Hero Awards for discovering the new formula for divisibility by seven in mathematics.
Ofili’s teacher, Miss Mary Ellis, who is also the head of the Mathematics department at Westminster Under School said he discovered the formula while solving a holiday assignment. Miss Ellis said in an educational journal that she gave a book called First Steps for Problem Solvers (published by the UKMT) to study during the holidays.
This news is another testimony that Nigerians are making waves and earning a lot of accolades through innovative inventions and achievements all over the world.
