Let us calculate the values of each percent then compare the results.

First we will calculate the values os 15% of 380.

==> 15% of 380 = 15*380 / 100 = 57.

Now we will calculate the values of 25% of 210.

==> 25% of 210 = 25*210/100 = 52.50

Now we will compare both numbers.

We notice that 57 is greater than 52.5

**Then, we conclude that 15% of 380 is greater than 25% of 210.**

We have to determine whether 15% of 380 is greater of 25% of 210.

- 15% of 380

= (15/100)*380

= 57

- 25% of 210

= (25/100)*210

=52.5

As 57 > 52.5, 15% of 380 is greater.

**The greater number is 15% of 380.**

**Solution to Question 1**

- In figure A, 1 small square out of a total of 100 is colored red, the answer is

1 / 100 = 1% - In figure B, 41 small squares out of a total of 100 are colored red, the answer is

41 / 100 = 41% - In figure C, 50 small squares out of a total of 100 are colored red, the answer is

50 / 100 = 50% which is also equal to one half. - In figure D, 100 small squares out of a total of 100 are colored red, the answer is

100 / 100 = 100% which is also equal to one.
