.54765 + .405405 + .046808 = .999863

If you carried Edbeard's numbers out to more decimal points, you'd end up with 1. But .999 is good enough for me to understand that it adds up to 1.

so if you round them all down, it's 98%, and if you round them all up, it's 101%. Rounding does not give you accurate results, just approximate results.

And thus concludes our math lesson for today.

which is why I don't like percents, there should be a pie graph with correct angles.

I thought you were an English teacher, not a math instructor...or are they cross training you? ;)

But really, I'm glad to see 700+ votes. I think it is safe to say that if over 1400 eyes (give or take a few pirates) have seen the Foundry in a short span like this...that must be good...even if only for a short time.

You provided them. But if you don't want the credit, I'll take it ;)

And the whole point of this is that rounding is never the answer. Carry your decimals all the way out until the end :twisted:

All fractions are terminating decimals, and thus can be written as decimals with 100% accuracy. It's just a matter of going out far enough.

well, this map is set in 1900 - when there were just 1 million people. i stand by my map.

Then you should know that Acre was not part of Brazilian territory in 1900 (it was part of Bolivia) :mrgreen:

After all this math class and everything, once more congrats to all, and specially to RJ. If you like, we can discuss the changes and updates before posting. I will anyway take some time to check again some names accuracy... but Im very happy because Im sure this will be a great revamp. :D

Thanks all..
I would prefer a new thread to discuss the map and how it needs to progress. This thread is out of control.

Gim? you agree? If so - I can start it in the main foundry.

Congratualtions to RJbeals, who took his crayons to the extreme to produce his amazing REVAMP attempt!

Click image to enlarge.

This development of this map will now be moved over to its own independant thread in the main foundry! (Once RJ creates it of course!

I award RJ this on his fine attempt!

Image Image

I would also like to congraulate all our entrants into the competition, without them this wouldn't of been anywhere near as exciting or enjoyable without every one of them. It was a pleasure to run this competition for you guys!

Cheers,
gimil
