Well e.g.:

If I wanted to skip to a page I know there is a nice problem (say page 57 out of 93) the I would need to click about 18 times to get to it.See the problem? Try going bigger. Page 132 out of 297.

Hi MIF;

Thanks, I did not know that!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
