It is given that 100 students were asked whether or not they enjoyed a book and nine twenty-fifths, which is the fraction 925\dfrac{9}{25}, said they did not like the book. We need to find the number of students who did like the book.

First, we can use the given fraction to find the number of students who did not like the book:

100×925=90025=36100\times\dfrac{9}{25}=\dfrac{900}{25}=36

Since 36 students did not like the book, then 10036=64 students100-36=\boxed{64\text{ students}} did like the book.
