Ok, this might sound a bit stupid, but I find these kind of statements "x % slower/faster" pretty confusing.
Let's say I have algorithm A and algorithm B. Algorithm A takes 50 seconds to complete a task and algorithm B takes 25 seconds.
Now I could make the following statements:
- "B is twice as fast as A"
- "B is 100 % faster than A" (speedA - speedB)/speedB = 100%
- "A is 50 % slower than B" (speedA - speedB)/speedA = 50%
Am I right about this?
