let shariat have 100 stamps

then anita has 125 stamps (100%+25%)

when anita has 125 stampss then shariat has 100 stamps

when anita has 100 stamps then shariat has 100/125

percentage of stamps of shariat less than that of anita = (100/125 x25)% = 20 %

therefore shariats collection is 20 % less than anitas collection

hope it helps u
