I have a question on the numbers that were posted. Where are the decimals on The Daily Average located?

The numbers dont seem to work, unless im going about it all wrong???

Number of average pages per day for Oct: 76,475
Number of posts per page (Counted them): 20
Divided into 76,475 = 3,823.75 posts per day
Times days since post was put up (9) = 34,413.75 posts to date more or less
Added to the 951,650 posts that are already accounted for = 986,063.75 posts since start of thread more or less..... But its not shut down yet so we havent even reached 965k yet

Hmmm This IS tricky!!

Sorry bud, we're not helping with your calculations. And I suggest you don't post them in this topic.

This is a contest. Do the best you can like everyone else, and leave your logic, calculations, and theories with your questions........offline.

Ok Jeff.. I see the true puzzle here. Basic Algebra right

If Bill Wren posts on an average X times per minute and Bill Boost posts an average of X times per hour then add to that the rest of the club posting X times per kilometer then how soon before all that less the current count equals the desired result?

Will send my guess when I get to my email.

Gotchya!! I was just typing out loud to try and put some logic into it.

I'll just have to take a guess then. Numbers were never my strong point.
