Tag, I need your hints to solve this. Angela's household budget is $900 per month. She wants to reduce her utility bills by $25$. How much would she save on the average if her present annual cost for utilities is $15\%$ of her household budget? Data given budget for the entire month= $ $900$ wants to reduce utility bills by $25($ dollars I suppose) present cost for utilities $=15\%$ of the budget how much would she save on average at the present she is paying for utilities $135.00( $15\%\cdot 900=135.00)$ she wants to reduce that $135.00$ by $25...$. I am not getting something here. she wants to reduce $25$ dollars on that amount? $i\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ dont think it should be $13525=110$ it is too easy, $i\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ guess, thanks for any help Für alle, die mir helfen möchten (automatisch von OnlineMathe generiert): "Ich möchte die Lösung in Zusammenarbeit mit anderen erstellen." 

Those data given your outcome is correct. I don't see any other interpretation of this problem. Shortest calculation: $900\cdot \mathrm{0,15}25=110$ 

Vielen Dank.
