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 $25\left($ 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( $15%\cdot 900=135.00\right)$

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 $135-25=110$
it is too easy, $i\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ guess,

thanks for any help

Those data given your outcome is correct.
I don't see any other interpretation of this problem.

Shortest calculation:

$900\cdot 0,15-25=110$
