Question: Why have so many more people in the USA, were marijuana is illegal tried it? 40% of people in the USA compared to 20,2 % in The Netherlands?
Bill O’Reilly: The way they do the statistics in The Netherlands is different, plus it is a much smaller country, it’s a much smaller base to do the stats on. I don’t care what happens in The Netherlands…..
As you can see in a previous post: The Truth about Pot, Anarchy, and Sex in Amsterdam, a response to a Fox News Broadcast by someone living in Amsterdam and a little smarter, all figures are in percentages.
In mathematics, a percentage is a way of expressing a number as a fraction of 100 (per cent meaning “per hundred”). It is often denoted using the percent sign, “%”. For example, 45% (read as “forty-five percent”) is equal to 45 / 100, or 0.45.
Percentages are used to express how large one quantity is, relative to another quantity. The first quantity usually represents a part of, or a change in, the second quantity, which should be greater than zero.
