Well ... Amin

Before you ask again, I refer you to;


where I say

where Y = A - 100%,

then Y x 2 = Z

A equals the level of literacy, Y equals the levels of illiteracy and Z is the level of literate but uneducated.

and in the same article I provide the source

The formula for estimating is from the UNHCR 54/122. A United Nations literacy decade: education for all the report of the Third Committee (A/54/595) dated 20 January 2000

Now ... Amin, are you going to ask the same question yet again? Maybe my mate the guy who works at the local 711 can tutor you? He considers you would be hard work, ... he asked if you were from Pakistan originally?
