# About how many people who are part of Socratic answer questions and how many of them just ask questions?

Dec 16, 2017

That actually depends...

#### Explanation:

... on what you mean by "people who are part of Socratic".

For example, we have about $\text{100,000}$ people who have created accounts on Socratic, but the vast majority never answered a question.

So if you take the number of accounts to mean people who are part of Socratic, then you can say that more than 90% never posted an answer, i.e. 90% only asked questions.

Out of the remaining 10%, the vast majority posted fewer than $100$ answers and only about $500$ contributors posted more than $100$ answers.

These are rough numbers, but it's safe to say that most of the people who have accounts on Socratic stick to asking questions.
