Why Users * Bouncerate match NOT Users with Bounced Sessions?

A question about how (1) Bonce Rate and (2) Users with Bounces associate?

 

For me, it make sense that: Users * Bounce Rate = Users with Bounces: So are 100 users on a given day with 50% Bounce Rate = 50 Users with Bounced Session on that day.

 

But the report below shows:

- 15k Users

- a Bounce Rate of 63%

- and 2.5k Users with Bounced Sessions

 

I am realy wondering how this could work? Could you put me in the picture?

(report and the report settings below)

Bounce Rate is measured against the # of Entrances, not Users.

So Change the User Metric to Entrances in your Custom Report.

Yessss, thanks a lot Mahyar! My error in reasoning is clear now: Users, who came via other pages can't bounce, so # entrances must be the basis for bounces.
