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. :)
April, I appreciate your input and think you are onto something here.. however after Daytona I was ranked 56% at 409,733, you then have to factor in ties at each level.. with that being said, if I stood alone at 50% there would have to be at least 819,466 teams (409,733 x 2).. So there is the flaw in our whole mathematical system. I lost 74,777 positions last week after Bristol and dropped 22% in the rankings (at 69% now). I'm not a alchemist by no means and from time to time could use help with my checkbook (LOL!!) It would be much easier if Yahoo!! would just provide the number of teams in this league.. Thank you for your help! Seriously..

Are you sure you were at 409K??? After Daytona I was 42% and about 185K.
It would be easier if Yahoo would provide us with the total but evidently we aren't entitled to that info. LOL 
Balls, DaGoat did you guys like the racing?

I too came up with approx 333,000 by using your method.
god help us if there are over a million and a half redneck nascar fans (i;m a fan not a redneck) 2 Replies to ballsdeep

Did you guys see Travis Kvpil's #28 yates car Sunday? The number 11 million painted on the hood of his car represented the 11 million viewers that are watching NASCAR every Sunday. If 10% of the viewers are rednecks (I bet it's higher than 10% LOL!!) That is 1.1 million in itself.. Have you been to the track lately?? LMAOO!!

We are all part redneck, just to a different degree. :)
There probably are 1.5M redneck Nascar fans, just not on here. LOL
