To find which value if greater, we will calculate the value of each percentage.

==> 10% of 325 = 10/100 * 325 = 32.5

==> 15% of 295 = 15/100 * 295 = 44.25

==> 25% of 250 = 25/100 * 250 = 62.5

Now we notice that 32.5 < 44.25 < 62.5

Then the greatest number is 25% of 250, then 15% of 295, then 10% of 32.5.
