Does anyone know why 5 stars is the perfect amount to achieve? Why not 6? I would have chosen 6 because it's a perfect number..

100 is the perfect score.


Your mum is the perfect score.....

Just had to get that out there.

Also...is it because we have 5 fingers on our hands?

The only 6 words that can make you a better guitarist:

Learn theory
Practice better

It's all arbitrary. It is just because it is. When rating hotels, for example, four stars is the top, while amongst gourmet restaurants, 3 stars is the pinnacle.

Because it is half the sum of all of it's positive divisors- in this case, (1+2+3+6)/2=6


That just make it a mathematical FREAK! and it should be treated as such and be shunned from society.

I suppose it may be based on 5 fingers, but since out # system is base 10, I'm surprised it's not 10 stars.

5/5= 100%
6/6= 100%
125576346354/125576346354= 100%

10 stars is to much, and thus, 5 is half of that. Plus, as the other guys said, 5 fingers on one hand, easy.

EDIT: And, btw, why not 42?

5 stars, 5 points.
5/5=100%

And logic has gone right down the can

I JUST realised your name is supposed to be Johnny 5, not Johnny Vee!

My point about 5 points, stands.

And if you try to argue that stars can have 6 points
and 6 stars with 6 points is also 100%

Well, you're just a dirty jew

That does not change the fact that 5 is not 1/20 of 100%, because by definition 1%=1/100, which makes 5=500%. So 5 is actually 1/20 of 100 and not 100%. I was only talking about 5 as a number itself, yo.

I don't recall claiming that 5 was 1/20th of 100

My point:

5 stars, with 5 points each 5/5 (excluding the jews)
and 5/5 as a fraction = 100%

Then you completely missed my point.
Basically it was like:
-I quote a guy that claimed 5 was 1/20 of 100%
-I say he is wrong
-you post directly after me on the same topic but your post does not really prove mine wrong or anything which means that it was either directed at someone else or that you failed at getting my point
-I make my point again
-You say you did not claim what I proved wrong but still it looks like you responded to me in the first place

So I guess your initial post either wasn't directed to me or we have some sort of misunderstanding

I am not very good with numbers, so alot of the posts in this thread are making my head hurt.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
