Question on percentages
« on: August 31, 2010, 11:58:38 am »
Jim,

I'm adjusting my schedule for September and October. If I have a zone set to 15 minutes and the percentage set for the month at 80%, does that mean the zone will water for 12 minutes (80% of 15 minutes)?

Thanks,

Jim

Hello Gangee,

Yes, exactly.

What happens when the math doesn't work out exactly, so 80% of 11 minutes?  Or 20% of 3 minutes?

Hi ljm,

When the math doesn't work exactly, the remaining seconds are truncated, with a minimum of 1 minute.  So 80% of 11 mins will result in 8 minutes.  20% of 3 minutes will result in 1 minute.

Hope this helps.

Jim
