Thanks to my astronomer side ;-)

I just had a run where I got 24 out of 25 for a score of 96%. The one mistake was where all of the circles with the smaller count were the largest size, and all of the circles with the larger count were the smallest size.

Usually I seem to get in the 88 to 92% range.
