    That makes no sense....you can't compare the two. You want the # of women that failed and the percentage of men that failed...

    So...if 1 woman failed, that is enough info for you
    If 20 men entered and 10 failed you would want to know the percentage.

    So your comparison would be one woman failed and 50% of the men failed. That doesn't tell you ANYHING. If however, you knew that 2 women entered and 1 failed, you would have a similar standard to compare...both would be 50%....

    Incorrect.. she/he (not sure really) wanted to know

    The bolded part would give a percentage.

    So.............what insight to the situation (females failing Infantry Officer Course) do you gain from knowing those two facts you insist are important
    I am still waiting for you to tell me what my 'obvious' agenda is, then, once I know my agenda, I'll tell you the simple truth behind those two 'obvious' questions.

    How about that?

    So.............. what's my agenda please.

    Maybe because I already have the other info...?

    NOW you do but that isn't what you first asked. You knew that didn't you? Did you hope I didn't remember?

    Re: Females Fail again

    TJMAC... I honestly think you're deliberately trying to misunderstand his argument. His point was perfectly clear.

    The OP declared women unfit for combat because two women failed out of the infantry officers course. Quixotic responded with "how many men failed". The point he was making should be fairly obvious, regardless of "agenda".

    I just want to see the attrition rate for men. Isn't it 100% for women so far? That's crappy considering there are some that can certainly do it.
