*HOW TO APPEAR SMARTER THAN YOU

^*HOW TO APPEAR SMARTER THAN YOU ARE*
This is one of my personal favorites: the "1 in … trick"…
if you want to be able to impress anywhere in any group, a trick: learn to quickly mentally convert "percentages" to "1 in…" style. It's easy and probably one of the few really good uses of math tricks that I know.

3%= 1 in 33
10% = 1 in 10
20% = 1 in 5

You restate the percentage in those terms and people ALWAYS go, "oooh, he smart!"^
