# Featured Instructable Percentage Incorrect? Answered

I have 46 Instructables
4 Have been featured

46 / 4 X 100 = >8%

About 8% of my 'Ibles Have been featured, Though it shows in the top right corner of my page that 5% have.

Is it a bug, Or do I have something incorrect with my math?

You also have 23 collections, none of which are featured. The featured percentage includes your collections. 4 of 69 is 5.8%.

Does that mean we can use the stats now?
Last time I checked they were estimations or guesswork but nothing close to reality...

The feature percentage isn't in your stats. It's at the top of your profile page.

I'm just glad I don't really care too much about the stats anyway.
Some people might post Ibles for the number of hits, getting featured or just to win a price, I am totally fine if some people give postive feedback on my Ibles.
Real feedback says more than thausands of hits IMHO.

I don't really care either, but I was just interested to know why is it like this...

And positive feedback always puts a smile on your face :)

Uumm, no offense, but, I think your math is incorrect. 4 is not 8% of 46. You had it right with, 46/4. Which equals 11.5%. Just sayin.

7. Solution for 4 is what percent of 46

100%/x%=46/4
(100/x)*x=(46/4)*x - we multiply both sides of the equation by x
100=11.5*x - we divide both sides of the equation by (11.5) to get x
100/11.5=x
8.69565217391=x
x=8.69565217391

now we have:
4 is 8.69565217391% of 46
