Ben August replied to Capri's discussion Macy's thinks that their customers are innumerate

"To chime in along with other's here- I disagree with your premise. Applying a 30% discount, and then a further 10% off, is not the same as applying a flat 40% discount. It seems like the numbers are kept seperate to help make that clear.

Vincent Granville replied to Capri's discussion How do you estimate the proportion of bogus accounts on Facebook?

Razvan replied to Capri's discussion How do you estimate the proportion of bogus accounts on Facebook?
