Beth and Jim each recieved a salary increase . If Jim's salary was increased by the same percent as beth's salary, did Beth recieve a greater dollar increase in salary with jim ?
1. Before the increases , Jim's salary was greater than $25,000.
2. Before the increases , Jim's salary was 4/5th of Beth's salary.
Beth -> 5/4 * (Jims salary) => $31250
Now the tricky party is we don't need to know the absolute values of salary.
Stmt 2 is sufficient to get the answer, if Jim's salary is 4/5th of Beth's salary then clearly Beth's salary is more than Jim's salary and thus a same % increase would recieve a greater dollar increase.
