Answer:
John rented the jet ski for 5 hours.
Stepbystep explanation:
Take the total cost: $199.95, and subtract $75 because that was included in the cost. You get 124.95. Next you divide $24.99 by 124.95, because $24.99 was the amount he paid per hour, and $124.95 is the amount that he paid in total for all the hours that he jet skied, and you get 5 hours.
