Question: Is (25/100)*p = (10/100)*r?

Question: Is (25)*p = (10)*r?

Question: Is (5)*p = (2)*r?

Question REPHRASED: Is r = 2.5p ?

Statement 1: r is 300 percent greater than p

i.e. r = p + (300/100)*p = p+3p = 4p
i.e. Answer to the question is NO
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: p is 80 percent less than (r + p)

i.e. p = (r+p)-(80/100)*(r+p)
i.e. p = 0.2 (r+p)
i.e. 0.2r = 0.8p
i.e. r = 4p
i.e. Answer to the question is NO
SUFFICIENT
