Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1im not sure but i will try it out, 1/21 * 100 = 4.76% were the helpers. ON TOTAL. And since the total popl decreased, the ratio should remain the same (i think) Next, thinking..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2thing is... is that 32% include the helpers? when u say a decrease total of 32%, i'm assuming the whole population so shouldn't the ratio still be 1:20? idk... :(
