Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. X percent of Y is equal to Y percent of X. So, if you want to find out what 7% of 50 is, you could instead find out what 50% of 7 is, which is 3.5. This means that 7% of 50 is also equal to 3.5.
More examples: If you want to find out what 2% of 20 is, do 20% of 2 instead and you’ll get 0.4. So, 2% of 20 also equals 0.4.
Or, 12% of 25 can be alternatively written out as 25% of 12 instead, which would be 3.
2. If you get a kitten, do use your hands to play so you can teach restraint when they are too rough.
Restraint is naturally learned in play with hands and littermates because the fun stops when a bite or scratch is too much. Adult cats who didn’t play this way are more likely to scratch or bite.
Obviously, this only works if you shout loudly (“OWW!”) and stop playing if a bite or scratch is too hard.
3. As a manager, give praise in public and give discipline in private.
4. When browsing en.wikipedia.org, you can replace “en” with “simple” to bring up simple English Wikipedia, where everything is explained like you’re five.
