Me: Okay, I understand that the new number divided by the original number will give you the percentage because its the reverse of the equation that gives you the original number but I still don't understand why. I mean, why do those numbers produce these numbers? Can you explain it to me?

And he's all 'but couldn't we look at it from a different angle' and she's NO. This is how it works. That's how it goes. You can't look at it from a differnt angle.

Me: So, um. It just does?
Sister: YES!
