2. To make it easier to see, let's say his income is \$1000
so he spends \$800 and saves \$200

his new income = 1.25(1000) = 1250
his new spending = 1.1(800) = 880
new savings = 1250-880 = 370
increase in savings = 370-200 = 170

increase in savings = 170/200 = .85 or 85%

3. now he makes 100, spends 80, and saves 20
later, he makes 125 and spends 88, saving 37

so, his savings went up 17/20 = 85%
