Yes. Let's take 100 as an example. When you add 15 percent you get 115. Now when you take 15 percent you are taking the 15 percent from a larger number. 15 percent of 115 is 17.25 so when you subtract 17.25 from 115 you get 97.75.

15% is bigger than 5%. 5% of 100 would be the number 5. 15% of 100 would be 15, so it is bigger.

115+(115x0.15)=132.25

115
