Reiny,
It is indeed "intense" if I can't figure out what you mean.

Ms. Sue,
You're welcome. Your question was clear when you put it into words.
Please note the way we write such a problem on the computer.

Damon,
Notice that you do not really need to do any calculating. I suspect that this is an exercise in estimation.
24/25 is just about one
so the answer is about 1/9
which is close to 1/10
so we are really talking about something around 0.1
which is a lot closer to zero than it is to the other choices.
