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: https://www.reddit.com/r/math/comments/5...questions/ 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 :)
