Well, you start with 20 guys, then you have 12 fail the drug test, 13 fail the weld test, 15 the math and 16 who won't show up the first day. I see my math is wrong. I think I forgot about the extra 16 guys who won't show up the first day. OOPPS! LOL! But I think that the assessment is just about spot on!

I see what is meant by this statistic....

Out of any 20 guys who apply, if the drug test is given first, 12 will fail... If the weld test is first, 13 will fail... If the math is first, (the guy quoting this statistic will fail... :lol:) 15 of them will fail, and if you just tell 20 idiots they're hired, 16 won't show.
