Did you miss my post earlier? It's not a 150% improvement.

EDIT: Again for those who missed it;

Frank: "I ran 22 miles today."
Joe: "How long was your last run?"
Frank: "The last one was 18 miles."

Q: How much did Frank improve?
A: He improved 4 miles.
Q: How many percent is that improvement?
A: 22%
Q: How do we know?
A: Because 18 x 0.22 = 4 (3. 96 to be exact).

In contrast: How much is 122% of 18? It is 21.96. And was Frank's improvement 22 miles?
