It works both ways, percentage is a good indication of majority (proportion) displayed as one figure eg

If I said that there are 50 broken items in my warehouse you can't tell if that is significant or not, if I only have 100 items in the warehouse then its very significant, if I have a million items its almost irrelevant, the corresponding percentages are 50% and 0.005% which give an instant indication.

What I don't like about media statistics is they often don't tell you the scope eg If the Wirral Globe says 30% of people have had measles, are they talking about in the Wirral, in England, in the UK or in the World?

There are always ways of wording things to mislead, whether intentional or not, part of that comes from the old problem of trying to create a statement that is true. The standard answer that is often used is along the lines of "I am going to die" but that is not a certainty for a number of reasons, a good answer I came across is "I have written this sentence" which I think would be better as "I have thought this sentence".

Then there are perfectly true statements that appear to be contradictory when they aren't eg (along the lines of) 70% of people that have had measles have had measles.

Have I out-rambled you?

I have for sale an intel i5 4690k, gigabyte H97N Wi-Fi board, 16 Gb Ram and a 120Gb SSD.

System is bare bones (no case no power).

I will gladly fit it to your old Pc case and power supply for you if you are just looking to upgrade your existing computer and not sure how.

£180 to wiki members and you also get the SSD which isn’t in the advert.

France and Brazil ? There's a 450 kilometre border between France and Germany, does that mean anything ?
