Oh that's interesting. Thanks for the contribution!

I don't have the prime, does someone has the program for the 50g? Although XQ should be there.

Then an extension of the question: one has the percentage of Yes but also the number of yes over the no.

So one has:

yes / ( yes + no )

and

yes - no = number

How many yes and no are required for this?
This is a common case in sites with like/dislike. For example reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/math/search?q=s...rict_sr=on

Taking one result at random:

Now reddit masks a bit the votes at every refresh(but not the ratio of likes/dislikes), but nevertheless one can try.

Yes - no = 62
Yes% = 94

How many 'yes', how many 'no'? (minimum of course)

The numeric solver on the hp 50 g returns (I translated in fraction) yes 1457/22 and no 93/22 . It may be not possible to get integers that solve the system above, maybe due to the reddit masking of numbers.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
