    Err....Not sure where to post this

    I've been lurking for a while and decided to join today as a result of encountering a puzzling "math" problem. I've been arguing with my friend from England which country will have the most Olympic medals and he came up with this
    (3.2*10^8/3.5*10^7) = 91 medals


    not sure if it's a legit problem or what but I need a snippy comeback ASAP

    can you guys help?

    3.2*10^8/3.5*10^7 = 914285714285714.285714286 according to my calculator. So, which country will win the most medals? I'll be heading to the bookmaker's office...
