Default Basic Math Question but I\'m stumped.

I was looking at my sharkscope stats. I've played 93 sng's. My profit is 0(both average and total) but my ROI is -26%. Shouldn't that be 0 as well?

Please explain this for me.

Thanks,

MJC

Default Re: Basic Math Question but I\'m stumped.

They take the average of all sng's for your ROI and simply the sum for your profit.

Example:
You come first in a $11 (Profit: $39; ROI: 355%)
You bubble in 13 $3's (Profit: -$39; ROI: -100%)
avg ROI: -67%

- The use of a "?" can replace the word "question."
- "Basic" is relative and subjective, therefore it does little to clarity or specify.
- It is unneccesary to state you're "stumped" as obviously if you weren't stumped, you wouldn't be asking a question.

Essentially, instead of using the Subject to tell us you have a question, use it to state the question as accurately and completely as possible and as space allows.
For instance: SnG: How Have No Profit but Positive ROI?
The current readers and those who are searching for the same or a similar topic in the future will know exactly what the thread is about and will appreciate that. Thanks.
