Windows 7: "Smart" Alloy Will Make Your Air Conditioner 175% More Efficient

so 175% more than 40% is 110%

let's work with actual numbers, shall we?

say (as in previous example) 100% is 100 units.
40% of this is 40 units.
still with me?

we increase the 40 units by 175% (175% of the 40 units).
first off, what are we doing?
we are adding an additional 175% of these 40 units to this amount.
40 * 1.75 (we all agree here 1.75 = 175%) = 70 (can be checked with a calculator for those who are slower)
this is the amount we are adding to the original 40 units.
so:
original units + 175% of those units = new total units
40 + 70 = 110 units now total.
That makes sense except your math is wrong.

40% of 100 units is 40, yes.
If you increase that by 175%, you are multiplying it by 1.75
40*1.75=70.

YOU DON'T ADD IT BACK.

50% is 1/2 correct?
So 1/2 of 50% is 25%.
175% is 7/4, so 7/4 of 50% is 87.5%

~Lordbob
Yes friend, 7/4 of 50% is 87.5% . The relevance, I have to admit, escapes me.

To show you the error in your reasoning, answer for me please two questions:
  1. If 70% represents a 175% increase from 40% in your world, what would a 100% increase from 40% be?
  2. If you earn £40 an hour and get a 75% pay rise, what would you expect to be paid now?
Take my word for it - if you have 40 of anything and increase them by 175%, you'll now have 110 of them

Alright, if you want to imply that the 100% is INCLUDED in the raise, then YES, you are right.

In this case, I still think my logic holds true. 2 entirely different cases, both correct.

We got there eventually

So, who wants to buy an air conditioner? You don't need to plug it in, but if you do you can sell the power it generates back to the grid. Careful though, using it could result in the heat death of the universe...

a 175% INCREASE on the original 40 you do TOO add back to the original
if you increase 40 by 50%, are you saying you only have 20? Highly unlikely, you end up with 60. (40 + (.50 * 40)) = 60
You say you are 18? Did you skip your math classes?

I am saying that 175% more efficient means that is is essentially 75% more efficient by your logic.

I am taking calculus.

Sweet god its about freaking time, honestly I feel guilty leaving that thing on all day but when it hits the 40's you have no choice but to, and big air conditioners are expensive as is you my as well donate an organ to get one.
