I’ll try again then we can agree to disagree.Well, I have to take issue with you there. There can be no more parts per hundred than 100. If during a survey twenty five people out of every one hundred express an opinion one way, then twenty five percent of the people have been in favor of that question.
If one has 150 pieces and twenty five pieces are defective, then appx. 17% are defective. That equates to 17 out of every 100. You cannot have more that 100 % of anything.
Again, per cent means per hundred.
Let's try again. You have 100% of a whole, and 100% of a half pizza. If you consider the sum total of one pizza plus the total of a half pizza to be 100%, then the half pizza represents 33 1/3% of your total pizza possession, you whole pizza is now 66 2/3%.It depends how you look at it.
If you have a whole pizza, that’s 100%. If I give you my leftover 1/2 of a pizza. You now have 150% of a pizza. Which is only 75% of 2 pizzas.
I do agree you can’t give more 100% effort. As @Dave P. ’s coach pointed out, if you’re still alive you didn’t give 100%
I’ll try again then we can agree to disagree.
If you have a case of 100 widgets. The case is the whole. You have 100%.
If you only have 75 widgets you have 75% OF A BOX.
if you have 150 widgets you now have 150% OF A BOX.
The key is you are using the box quantity as the whole.
It is a different thing to say you have 100% of the widgets. Than it is to say you have 100% of a box of widgets.
Hmmm...my Jr. High School (in Texas) geometry teacher taught me that pie r squared, and cornbread r round.You do not cut pizza into triangles, unless you further trim the slice.
It is cut into circular segments.
As to the square box, it is easier to make a folding lid on a square or rectangular box that on a circular one.
and why people say they get on the plane, hell if I was going to fly I would get IN the plane.I guess for the same reason that you drive on a parkway and park in the driveway.
