ARITHMETIC COMPARISONS”：
http://web.augsburg.edu/~schield/MiloPapers/984OfSigCompare3.pd

Relative difference [(Test – Base)/Base] Use
‘% more/less than’ or ‘times more/less than’.
· When using ‘% more/less than’: Five is 25% more
than four; four is 20% less than five.
· When using ‘times more/less than’: Five is 0.25
times more than four. Four is 0.20 times less than
five.

Confusing ‘times as much’ with ‘times more than’.
If B is three times as much as A, then B is two
times more than A – not three times more than A

3. If you elect to use ‘times more than’, then state the
comparison using both forms of ‘times’. E.g., nine
is two times more than three (three times as much
as three). This eliminates confusion and educates

It is just laughable when reading "something is 0.25 times more than
something else." For one thing, times is supposed to follow a whole number..
.Or least something bigger than 1.
