1. ## Quick maths question

OK, following this article of The Register: 100 MEEELLION .com domains now registered ? The Register
It states that there are now 220 million registered domains in the world. Edugeek sits in the internet rankings at about 24,000 (according to alexa.com and depending on what day of the week it is). Now, as I'm suffering a massive maths fail this morning, I need to know what percentage does that put us in as regards to the total i.e. the top 0.5% or 1%?
Anyway, every time I've asked this I get a different answer, so if any of you care to post up your result and then argue with the next result as to how you worked it out please feel free

2. Well, according to this site: Percentage Calculator
We are in the top 0.01% globally. Is this right?

3. 24,000 / 220,000,000 x 100 = 0.0109%

Just over 0.01

5. I get that percentage too ...

24,000 / 220 000 000 *100 = 0.0109

7. 220,000,000 / 10000 = 0.01% = 22,000

If EG is sitting at 24,000 then it's between 0.01%and 0.02% (or is my rudimentary maths wrong?)

9. Thanks for confiming everyone.

10. (24,000/220,000,000)*100=0.0109

Sound right to me...
