Problem

Suppose that the euro is worth 1.3 dollars. If Diana has 500 dollars and Etienne has 400 euros, by what percent is the value of Etienne's money greater that the value of Diana's money?

$\textbf{(A)}\ 2\qquad\textbf{(B)}\ 4\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ 6.5\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ 8\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ 13$

Solution

So convert everything to dollars; 400(euros) x 1.3 = 520 dollars. now, 520 divided by 500 = 1.04, which means a value that is 4% greater; B.
