I am very bad at mathematics, so apologies in advance. My confusion comes from the voting system on an online poll. Example video (Picked at random): http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/4d0ac00700/youre-pitiful-weird-al-yankovic-ver-1-from-insane_ian
The percentage is 71%, meaning that some combination of "funny" or "die" votes added up to that. If 10 out of 100 people voted "funny" it would be easy to say that the percentage who thought it was funny is 10%, I am wondering how the number is derived taking both into account.
Hopefully I worded this correctly. I have a feeling it is something simple that I just don't remember. Thanks. I'm not sure what to tag this with, so I'm taking my best guess. Sorry if that's wrong.
