What's the saying? "If you torture the statistics enough you can get them to tell you anything....."

Simple, to say ".........nine out of ten people make up 90% of the population?" is completely acceptable.
Whereas if I were to say "one out of ten people make up 10% of the population" I would be branded as an irresponsible lout incapable of understanding ABAP, the English language, grammar in general, the economy or the internal combustion engine.
