honkeylips: Calculus can be one of those 'make it or break it` classes, it`s rough.

Thankfully the class I had after calc was statistics, and that actually made me enjoy math again. It also helped me be able to spot BS stats, good statistical analysis can actually help you spot the bad analysis.

Click on my TED talk link on bad science to hear more about how that`s done.

Would 40% be majority if 30% said they liked math and 30% said neutral?

No, that would be a plurality. A majority is strictly >50% (in the US at least - here we would call it "majority" and "absolute majority").
