    Sorry, but what's to be livid about? I wasn't taught this method of doing it either, but so what...

    I can't do percentages without a calculator to this day.

    People are pissed because of the way it's presented in schools which makes it seem as if you need to be some kind of super genius to do the calculation. Math SAT scores are going to go up.

    I'm still confused - how else do you learn to do percentages - 90% of 80 is 0.90 x 80. Do the math, and then replace the decimal, or replace the decimal & do the math - the order doesn't matter.

    Like Suliso says, so what? There are so many ways to handle such simple calculations.
    And that is not math. It is arithmetic, a sub-sector.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    There was some long formula we were taught back in the stone ages.
