It depends on how you calculate 25% more but the percentage always changes depending on the dollar amount however you calculate it.

For example, if you start with Jane's amount, say \$1000, then 25% more of that would make John's amount \$1250. However, if you start with John's amount, say it's the same \$1250, then 25% LESS of that would make Jane's amount \$937.50.

Starting with John's inheritance at \$1000, then Jane's would be \$750, totaling \$1750. To make it even, John must give Jane \$125 so that they both end up with half of the total, or \$875. In this case, \$125 = 12.5%.

However, if you start with Jane's inheritance at \$1000, then 25% more would make John's \$1250 and he'd have to give her 12.5% to make it even. Starting with Jane's inheritance at \$800, then 25% more would be \$1000. In this case, John would have to give Jane \$100 or 10% to make it even.

So, no matter how you calculate, the percentage changes depending on the dollar amount.
