    I just plain suck at math. Ok, say, you have these percentages below: 71%, 79%, and 84%. What would be the overall percentage total?

    •  Do you mean "percentage average"? (0+ / 0-)

      You asked for "percentage total", which would be 234-but I think you want the percentage average. divide the total by 3 (you gave 3 numbers: 71%, 79% and 84%=234) and you get the average=78%.

      Congrats, you now know as much math as I do!
