PnL on the USD/JPY vs EUR/USD

Good Afternoon,
just have a quick question , in calculating out the correct PnL for the USD/JPY

I understand how to do this for Pairs such as the EUR/USD, NZD.USD, CAD/USD, etc..

I guess you could say that it's just the JPY pairs that are throwing me off

I attached a screen shot showing the Price change in the EUR/USD and in the USD/JPY from today's close ( 7-7-2015 )

Here is my way of calculating out the PnL .... input and help please

EUR/USD ...... 0.0041 x $125,000 = $512.50

GBP/USD ...... 0.0141 x $62,500 = $881.25

USD/JPY ...... 14.00 x $125,000 = $218.75 ?????

Thanks much
