Do the Math Revisited

I did not record the TV news the other day as proof of this announcement. However, you can’t make these things up.


In an announcement about the new test for the breast cancer gene, the commentator remarked about the low price of $249.00. He said that until now, more conventional tests could cost as much as $5,000.00 or “ten times as much.”

Isn’t $5,000.00 twenty times as much?
