Hell yes I'll be there!
The math still doesn't seem to work.. So what gives?!?
I lost 74,777 positions after Bristol (Oohhh the shame.. BIG GRIN!!), multiplied by my 22% loss in ranking works out to 1,645,094...
On the other hand logically thinking,1.6 million yahoo players in one league is 1.1 million too many to keep a league properly organized...
Who knows, better yet who cares?!? LOL!!
Da Goat - It's your math thats a little off. You would not multiply 74,777 by 22 because it is equal to 22%. You would need to devide 100 by 22 then multiply that by 74,777 for a total of 339,891
There is another way to figure it too. Here are my numbers as an example. I am currently 73,387 and at 78th % that means that 73,387 is equal to 22% (100% minus 78%) of the total players. To find the total devide 100 by 22 (equals 4.5454) then multiply that by 73,387 for a total of 333,573 players. Of course that is only an approximate total because each % is equal to about 3,300 players and there is no way to know exactly where in that number I am to calculate the accurate total. Hopefully this is not too confusing.....
So what time is the math lesson after the spelling bee? LOL :)
Oh, and obviously you care or you wouldn't have asked. :)
