I don't get why the method for these 2 questions is different. I appreciate they are different questions but aren't they essentially asking the same thing?

The average salary increase should be straightforward? Multiply by 12 to convert into 4 years then divide by 4.
Looking at the other one now ....Can't see a difference. By taking the average of 2 differences, it's the same as
(M35 - M25)/2 = ((M35-M30)+(M30-M25))/2.
Including the M30 info is irrelevant.

I think it was the M30 bit that sort of put me off. But how you've shown it makes sense. Thank you!
