### Percentage Logo Increased:

**Question:**

A circular logo is enlarged to fit the lid of a jar. The new diameter is 50 per cent larger than the original. By what percentage has the area of the logo increased?

**Option A):**

50**Option B):**

100**Option C):**

125**Option D):**

80

**Correct Answer is Option C):**

125

**Explanation:**

If the diameter of the old lid is 100, the diameter of the new lid will be 150.

This gives a ratio of 2 : 3

The areas of the lids will be in the ratio (2)2 : (3)2 . or 4 : 9

This represents an increase in area of 5units for every 4 units

5/4 is equivalent to 125 percent.
