Word Problem

Please assist me with this problem :

  John learned that after overhauling the carburetor in his car he would use only 80% as much gas. Last month, before overhauling his carburetor, he used 125 gallons of gas. Assuming that john drives the same number of miles next month, HOW MANT GALLONS OF GAS can he expect to save next month after overhauling his carburetor?

Please help with the formula to this word problem

simple,

80% of 125         = 80/100 X 125      
                              =  8/10 X 125
                              =  1000/10= 100
                              =  125-100= 25
      
                               = 25 is the answer
