Just scored a 590 on a fresh target with my T95.

It was my understanding 750 / 1.25 was 600, where am I wrong?

Can provide replay/screenshot if necessary.

People are not doing well with maths today are they?

 

750*75%=562.5

 

590 is a low roll, but it could have been worse.

you cant divide with 1.25 lol, that makes no sense. You have to multiply with 0.75. Whats up with maths today? first was the 50%=2x guy and now this

Sure you can divide by 1.25, it isn't a mathematical impossibility, it just doesn't get you the right answer.

Don't know why I made this mistake...

No need to be condescending though, replying like a jerk only makes you look like a jerk.

Geez people these days...

Mistakes happen. I'm sure we've all done far worse at some point in our lives.

Yes but in order to move past our shame we must point at someone else making a simple mistake and berate them until a newer candidate makes themselves known. It's the way of the interweb.

Last week I used a calculator to calculate a 20% discount on 180€. Felt quite stupid afterwards.

I think the fact that he didn't do it in his head/on paper. The fact that he needed a calculator to divide 180 by 5.

Yeah. I was doing lots of paperwork and went full zombie. When I got those simple numbers I basically didn't even notice that I could calculate that by hand in no time.
I surely suck at math, but normally not THAT much...

If that's how you math I wonder how you ever managed to download the game.

 

To get a value - 25% you can either:

 

(750 / 100) * 75

or

750 * 0.75

which is 562.5.

Making a forum post without actually thinking about something for longer than a second. Jeez, people these days.

 

Everybody makes mistakes, it's just not that hard to think about things for yourself for the littlest while.

You're wrong in the math. Dividing by 1.25 is not how you get 75% of something. Try multiplying by 0.75 instead, and your 750 alpha can drop to as low as 562.5
