Well, what you say is true of the physical version. But in the economical formula it is possible. An example, if someone uses nuclear power to get
energy, he has to put in x amount of energy first. That starts the chainreaction and produces more energy than was put in. In the economic formula you
output (larger than input)/ input *100% = larger than 100%
This is not a scientific formula though, but sometimes people use it for efficiency. In my opinion they call the two different formula's differently:
physical efficiency and economical efficiency.
