# Problem #1877

 1877 Suppose $A>B>0$ and $A$ is $x\%$ greater than $B$. What is $x$? $\textbf {(A) } 100(\frac{A-B}{B}) \qquad \textbf {(B) } 100(\frac{A+B}{B}) \qquad \textbf {(C) } 100(\frac{A+B}{A})\qquad \textbf {(D) } 100(\frac{A-B}{A}) \qquad \textbf {(E) } 100(\frac{A}{B})$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.

• Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
• Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
• Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
• Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
• If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
• Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
• Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
