Here is a little maths nonsnse
« on: 21/07/2008 10:16:42 »


 take a look at this...

101%

>From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER
100%.

How about ACHIEVING 101%?


What equals 100% in life?


Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer these
questions:


If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z


Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.



If:



H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+ 11 = 98%



And:

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%





But:

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%






Have a nice day

Bored chemist,

"Does innumeracy = 101%?"

I stated it was a little bit of nonsense.

I didn't expect to be taken that seriously, but it's a comment on those who say things like "The team gave 110%".

That annoys me. Petty, I know; but it does.
