What if I have a question with no answers? If I don't receive an answer, will it affect my Accept Rate?

@MichaelPetrotta I don't think it's a duplicate of How accept rate works? It is like asking a question(my question) from any book(How accept rate works)... – Akshay Thakur Aug 31 '12 at 5:23
It asks, and answers, your question, Akshay. I'm afraid I don't understand the rest of your comment. – Michael Petrotta Aug 31 '12 at 5:25

No. It does not count questions with no answers. Look at the accept rate of this OP's question. It's accept rate is 40%. Now hover to his accept rate it shows the following tool tip:

this user has accepted an answer for 4 of 10 eligible questions.

Now look at his questions tab. There are 13 questions. Where three questions have no answers. So accept rate is counted without questions with no answers.

Don't get "unanswered" confused with "without any answers." – Mystery Aug 31 '12 at 5:36
