What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

    @Sara - Which region is this about?

    Well done @LaszloMark

    FYI, we don't use a comma to mark the decimal place, we use a full stop. So, the answer would be 57.14%.

    @Lynne Oh, sorry, my bad. In Hungary we write comma to mark decimal place not full stop.

    We also use a full stop (or a period) to mark the decimal point, but several countries use a comma.
