          For each problem, subtract the percent right from 100 and you get the percent wrong.

          If you want the actual number of people who got the wrong answer, multiply the answers you get above by 20.

              100% - 48% = 52%
              2000 x 52% = 1040

              100% - 44% = 56%
              2000 x 56% = 1120

              100% - 32% = 68%
              2000 x 68% = 1360

              100% - 51% = 49%
              2000 x 49% = 980

                Of course, the answer to this one all depends on your view of cryptozoology.

                  That's what I was going for with the wisecrack answers. If you think about it, if someone doesn't believe in the science that is in the question, does that really make them "wrong"?

                      I'm sorry if I was late with it. I was online last night but didn't have too much time but check my math. I have been known to type wrong too :lol:

                        Well... you know... I'm just wondering what kind of people they were testing if such a large amount of people got the answers wrong...

                          :lol: probably Americans. Not to be rude to my fellow countrymen but dang some of them are ignorant folk (me probably included in that grouping) :lol:

                          If you ever really need to see how "smart" we Americans be watch this show called Street Smarts on Game Show Network (I think that's the channel). Oh the answers to some of those questions.....:lmao:

                            Oh... I've seen Street Smarts. It used to be in syndication. So, they're putting new episodes on GSN?

                            I know what you mean, though... People in general are stupid when it comes to the common knowledge. lol
