    Do you mean that the ger-districts taken as one single entity pay more for water than all mining companies added together, or do you mean that each ger-district household on average pays that much more than a single average mining company?

  2. Amarsanaa says:

    based on 1000 litres average, ger district consumers pay 84 times higher than mining companies pay for their consumption per litre

    84 times less ??? What a load of rubbish. 84 times less than any number above zero results in a negative number. There is a big difference between 84 times less, and 1/84 which is what i presume the title is meant to explain.

    ten times more than one is 10 x 1 = add ten to one = 10
    ten times less than one is 1-10 = subtract ten from one = -9
