There are 2 types of people in this world.
34% who can do mental math, and 76% who cannot.
Statistics are a powerful way to get a point across however when overused it can dilute their impact.
Used sparingly from a recognised source can add interest to your prose.
Be careful though, 82% of statistics are made up including the one’s I have used in this post.
Do not believe every clown on the internet.
