1 is what percent larger than 1/2?
50%
if you sell something for a dollar you paid 50 cents for, you earned 50% margin. So if you had a 50% off sale your sale price is 50 cents.

but 1 is 100% larger than a half utilizing a separate math function a different answer altogether by spinning the statement; but I played along.

1-.5=.5

.5 +.5=1

the souls who believe 3/8 is 33% larger than 1/4 went on to professional careers earning triple the national average at hire.
Those like you who disagree 3/8 is 33% larger than 1/4, will be stuck in minimum wage positions requiring government assistance so you don't starve and freeze to death.
That's quite a convincing argument Bubba, but you're still wrong.

Try it this way Bubba:

1/8 is equal to 1/2 of 1/4, right? Restated, 50% of 1/4 = 1/8.
Got it?

Now, what do you get when you add 1/8 to 1/4? That's right Bubba, your magic number of 3/8.

Voila!!! 3/8 is 50% larger than 1/4. Not 33% Bubba.

50%.

when speaking of steel as we were, when asked to shave 33% off 3/8" stock, what is your final dimension?

so when speaking about poking holes through steel, would it not make logical sense to deter me thickness variance?

evidently not to a brilliant self proclaimed supreme court judge like yourself.
