CNN says candidate Bob Barr will raise $40 to $45 million, which it then refers to as "eight times less than what Obama is expected to raise." References to "n times less" seem nonsensical to me. Can someone make an argument in its favor? How does one do the math to determine what $45 million is eight times less than?

If X is 8 times more than Y, than I would consider Y 8 times less than X. So if $40 million is 8 times less than $320 million.
