Percentages...so basic :(Hey all, #2 20050920 22:41:18
Re: Percentages...so basic :(Yes, because 10% of 100 is 10, 10% of 90 is 9, just as 10% of 50 is 5. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20050921 09:32:46
Re: Percentages...so basic :(I don't understand where your getting the 1 from. #4 20050921 23:10:37
Re: Percentages...so basic :(1 is 100%, so I was just showing that 100%10% = 90%, or 10.1=0.9 "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
