Next Sunday is mother's day, but where should the apostrophe go in that title? It appeared as "Mother's Day" 14 times and "Mothers' Day" 12 times. What percentage of those entries was the apostrophe BEFORE the 's' ?

I would go with "Mothers' Day" because it is a celebration of ALL mothers, not just yours or mine.

14 / {14 + 12} =14 / 26 =0.5385 x 100 =53.85%

You are a bit loose with your equals signs there, Guest!  😱

 

Take care to ensure equals always means equals!!

 

It can be fixed with  % sign after the 100

 

😟    😱    😭    😖
