14. Your math is off, but point taken

Actually, that is half of one hundredth of a percent. Sorry to be a stickler, but such an overstating does diminish a valid observation.

1 percent of 9,000,000 = 90,000
0.1% of 9,000,000 = 9000
0.01% of 9,000,000 = 900
0.005% of 9,000,000 = 450

Remember, 1 percent is the same as multiplying by .01
