I think I am pretty good at math most of the time, but I heard something on the tv that just escapes me for some reason.
There was an ad proclaiming that something (I can’t remember what- I’ve been meaning to ask this for some time) was 1000% better than the competition, later they said that it was 10 times better than the competition.
The reason I’m confused- if something is 100% bigger, it is 2 times the original (or competiting product)- 200% leads me to believe that it’s 3x bigger or better. So 1000% would make me think that it is 11x bigger/better. Was the product on the tv really 11x better, and they were short changing themselves or what?
