• Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
• Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
• This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

Circumference of Earth = 24,901.47 miles or 40,075.04km

So if you're within 1%, you're within 249 miles or 407.5km. That likely covers most of the native population of the UK who still live there.

I dont even know how to work this out. what percentage is 12,000km?

12,000km is 12,000% of 100km.

You're welcome.

Fixed it for you. When giving useless information make sure it is accurate.

2. key in your place of birth and current location.
4. look for a calculator / calculator app (yawn)
5. key in those figures (hard to keep my eyes open)
6. choose the option and slump on the laptop.

You may as well use Google as your calculator (you do know it evaluates expressions and conversions?), or simpler yet go to http://www.wolframalpha.com/ [wolframalpha.com] and ask it to calculate:
