On first read - they both feel the same

Just using SC skills - i am looking for the words after the word "Than". I know in the world of SC comparisons, that would be important. So,

1st case) after than ==> 110 % of x or 1.1 of x
2nd case) after than ==> x

I wonder whether this would be any easier for you with 50% instead of 110%, jabhatta2?
