[flagrant demonstration of why I don't get invited to parties]<br>
12 is 80% of 15<br>
20% less than 15 which is, I'm sure, what you were going for<br>
20% of 15 is 3<br>

and 12 is the answer you were going for Bsmiz.
Here is my favorite math teacher story:<br><br>
I'm half way through Math 12(probably pre-calc-ish). My teacher, Peter Pidgeon(yes, his real name) calls me to his desk after class one day. He says "Morticia(his nickname for me), Morticia, you've peaked. You can't learn any more math. Drop my class and take health". Which I did, which was delightfully easier than math 12.<br><br>
I was a straight A math student up until Trig(grade 11). That year I drove into school with my brother and we smoked a joint every morning. Trig was first period with Stan the man Meade who spoke very monotone and slowly. If I wasn't giggling, I was sleeping.
Not mine anyway!<br><br>
You should correct my spelling, not my math....I meant to say, 20% OFF 15... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
The great thing about us in PRT is that the question was answered in 4 minutes in the first post...and 7 hours later we're planning a Math Party. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
I still have a slide rule for show n' tell.
