I'll honestly say that percents were one of my weakest points in Math but the chance of the modified retrieval program being successful was 9.6%, so isn't that the lower number?

You're right though there wasn't a diverse enough selection in leapees. We never had a single Asian, Indian (India Indian), Arabian, South American, Persian or Polish leapee. Those are just some of the major cultures we were deprived of. That's one reason the novel Pulitzer is wonderful, there we a Chinese leapee.
