I took calculus in high school and haven't had a math class since then.
However, I don't think I need calculus to reveal the math here:
305,238,000 People * $1/People = $305,238,000
You were off by:
$111,411,870,000 - $305,238,000 = $111,106,632,000
$305,238,000/$111,411,870,000*100% = 0.2739726
That leaves you with a margin of error at approximately 100%.
Glad I'm not a democart...
