I keep on coming into these problems while my gre prepration
How many times vs how many times greater or
a is what % of b or a is what % greater than b
What is the right convention to solve these problems? Some websites treat both of these scenarios similar? However I believe that in case of larger you have to do
if how many times b greater than a
Let's say a=9, b=3;
So I get these answers. Are these answers correct?
1: a is 3 times b.
2: a is 2 times greater than b.
3: a is 300% times b.
4: a is 200% times greater than b.
My confusion is that in this question, author does the opposite of what he should do.
