I thought everyone knew this rule:

If your probability of making an error is X%, then when you write about accuracy or quality it rises to 5X%.

If the result is greater than 100%, then you are at risk of making TWO errors.

And yes, I have checked THIS post very carefully. I fixed three typos and there may well be one I missed.

I had about six typos in my post before fixing them, but that's partly because I was using an unfamiliar keyboard.

I like your formula. Is there a similar one for blog postings criticizing articles criticizing typos? I'm assuming things get exponential the smugger you are...
