let's see if 100,000 is the 100%, the new retained earnings is 125,000 so it's really 25,000 more than before so how much is 25,000 of 100,000? or lemme put it differently \(\begin{matrix} \$ && \%\\ \cfrac{100,000}{125,000}& =& \cfrac{100}{x} \end{matrix}\)

solve for "x" to find out how much 125,000 is in % compared to 100,000

or we can also use \(\begin{matrix} \$ && \%\\ \cfrac{100,000}{25,000}& =& \cfrac{100}{x} \end{matrix}\) to check how much is 25,000 in % compared to 100,000 either way

jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
say using this one \(\begin{matrix} \$ && \%\\ \cfrac{100,000}{25,000}& =& \cfrac{100}{x} \end{matrix}\)
