In calculations for wind pressures, the working stresses set forth in the code may be increased by fifty per centum.
In legal documents the rate is sometimes expressed as a certain sum of money " per centum per annum "; here " centum " must be taken to mean " boo."
In no case shall the overturning moment due to wind pressure exceed seventy-five per centum of the moment of stability of the structure.
