"1.5*1.3 does not (even approximately) make 1.05..."

Please read the statement again.

(1 + 0.5) * (1 - 0.3) = 1.05

It's 1 MINUS 0.3. It would then be 1.5 * 0.7 = 1.05

Edit: Also, not that this would be kept anyway, but

than if they were {{tt|additive|1+0.5+0.3=1.9}}.

1 + 0.5 + 0.3 = 1.8, not 1.9. Please check the context and signs before editing formulas in the future. These are incredibly egregious math errors.

Sorry, I must have really been more tired than I though when I made the edit and I got fixated on the "≒" sign which is the only thing I should have changed. I'll make sure to be more careful next time.
