why 25?

Well math is 100,000 to 125,000 is 25%? Because fractions: 1/4 to 2/4 is 25%

i wound say 125 percent but not sure 100000/100=1000 then 125000/100=1250 1000/1250=1.25*100=125

You have it almost right but your forgetting the decimal. The most logical answer is A It can't be 125% because then he would have to go from $0 to $125,000!

the answer is 12.5?

  • anonymous
It has to be but if you want to wait for someone to prove it be my guest :) I'm alright with math and I'm thinking that 12.5 has to be the answer.
