    This is why we need a groan button. @4legsRbetterthan2, can you make it happen????

    She's a biologist not a programmer! :D

    That's right-I did read that. Maybe she can tell the programmers......

    dunno, all the crap we get about the woo button, this sounds dangerous to me too!

    And this is why we can’t have nice things :cry:

    The commutative property of math is why a% of b = b% of a.
    "%" implicity means " times 1/100". Thus "a% times b" becomes "a times 1/100 times b". It's the same forward, backward, sideways. It doesn't matter if you do "1/100 times a times b" or "a times b times 1/100". You can do "b times a times 1/100" just as easily. We learned this in 3rd grade.

    3rd grade? Was my math classes just dumb or were yours advanced? Cause in third grade we didn’t start throwing letters into our maths. Not when we were 7-8 years old.

    But I am also unclear why this is interesting. Am I missing something? Cause can’t you take any numbers and times and divide them in any order for the same result?

    That’s why arguements happen when people post questions like 1+1+1*0=?? Cause some people go left to right and others follow pedmas

    I do get that, not piling up buffet food just because it's "all you can eat", but wasting food or not doesn't help starving countries. So I think the comparison they're drawing doesn't really make sense even though their request to not waste food does.

    They just want to save money by having people not eat as much or throw away a ton of food. It's a guilt trip. I would probably take a plate, and after filling it, directly walk over to the trash can and dump it in. I hate that kind of passive aggressive *kitten*.
