Explanation

Twenty cigars bought individually would cost $40, so apply the percent change formula — \(\frac{difference}{original}\times 100\) —to determine Quantity A. In this case, the difference is $10, and the original, because it’s a percent decrease, is $40: \(\frac{10}{40} \times 100 = 25\), so Quantity A is 25%.


Quantity B is greater.

\(33\frac{1}{3}\) is to be read as 33.33?
