Alright, so I'm really tired right now and can't figure out how to ask this question...

I was talking to my girlfriend, made a crappy joke and she said "I know love you 100% more than I did before, which makes it 10482999272990100000000100%"

Now, what she did there was just add 100% on the end...that's not right, is it?
Wouldn't that entire number be increased by 100%?

Sorry for the vagueness, but it's late and I'm reading into an offhanded comment more than I should

EDIT:

For example, if I increased 300% by 100%, wouldn't that make it 600%? Or 400%?

100% of X + X = 2X

Double, that's the world I was looking for, and yeah, that's what I thought.

Haha, she just said it really quickly, and honestly, she said it about 4 hours ago, but it just struck me as odd while I remembered it.

If you start calling out your girlfriend on mathematical mistakes she's not going to be your girlfriend for long.

This, though I believe it's pretty clear that it's not something serious.

Yes, the number would be doubled.

I can't tell if this should be in the relationship thread or the maths thread.

We haven't considered the case where his girlfriend initially loves him 0%, thus making her claim that she loved him 100% more than she did qualitatively valid for her and quantitatively appealing to poor TS, though he still gets no love.

10482999272990100000000100%? 10482999272990100000000100% of what?

This means nothing. She's clearly seeing someone else.

You would need an original quantitative number for the percentages to the based on. If you increase something by 100% it doubles, but if you increase something by 200% it triples.

But, if you increase it by 100%, then again by 100% after compounding, it has quadrupled in total value.

If she compounded that massive percentile first, then loved you 100% more, you would have double that percentage that was stated.

If not compounded, you would just tack on an extra 100% at the end, which is extremely marginal on the grand scheme of the number.
