Kaden’s salary last year was $125,000. If his salary is cut

between x% and y%, then his new annual salary will be

between:

(A) $125, 000(1 − x) and $125, 000(1 − y)

(B) $125, 000x and $125, 000y

(C) $125, 000 − x and $125, 000 − y

(D) $1, 250(1 − x) and $1, 250(1 − y)

(E) $1, 250(100 − x) and $1, 250(100 − y)

So, I thought that:

x% = 100*x (Example: 5% = 100*0.05)

If that's true, then:

x = (x%/100)

And if that's true, you can plug in x into Answer A to get the correct range.

However, they didn't do it like that.... Is the answer wrong?
