How many knots-per-inch?
What percentage of knots have errors?

I do believe if you aren't given a p that you're supposed to use .5.  I'm not sure that I'm applying this rule on the correct subject, but does that sound familiar to you?


I just realized you don't have an N either.  I don't suppose they mean errors in a foot?  i.e. out of 200?  (That's a little weird but it's all I can think of.)
