October 6, 2021 | education

| Since the number a is 2.5 times greater than the number b, then b = 250: 2.5 = 100%

Thus, we find how many times the number b is less than the number a:

b: a = 100%: 250% = 0.25 times

Therefore, the number b is 0.25 of the number a

We translate into percent and get that the number b is 25% of the number a
