Pareto Principle

80/20 Rule

Mathematically, the 80/20 rule is roughly followed by a power law distribution (also known as a Pareto distribution) and many natural phenomena have been shown empirically to exhibit such a distribution.

In computer science the Pareto principle can be applied to optimisation efforts. For example, Microsoft noted that by fixing the top 20% of the most-reported bugs, 80% of the related errors and crashes in a given system would be eliminated.
