Last year the price per share of Stock X increased by k percent and the earnings per share of Stock X increased by m percent, where k is greter than m. By what percent did the ratio of price per share to earnings per share increase, in terms of k and m?

A. k/m%
B. (k-m)%
C. [100(k-m)]/(100+k)%
D. [100(k-m)]/(100+m)%
E. [100(k-m)]/(100+k+m)%

Hi, can someone explain the solution in detail... Don't we need to know the relation between price per share and earnings per share to determine the ratio?
