I do a lot of product-specific training in the workplace. Two weeks ago I was training a roomful of university graduates for one of the big consultancies. One of the exercises incidentally asked the students to compute a percentage. I had to explain how.

Faced with that, it hardly seems worth considering your question above.

Ask me again in a few weeks when I've forgotten the experience.
