## Answers

First, find the difference of 100 & 85 & the answer will be the increase in salary per wk
100-85 =15
To find the percent increase
15/85 = 0.17647 ( multiply by 100 to get the percentage)
0.17647*100 = 17.65% (rounding off the answer to the nearest percent)
=18%

To find the percent increase:
1. Find the difference
2. Divide the difference by the original number it went up from, in this case it went up from $85
3. Round the answer to the nearest percent, or whole number.
Find the difference, 100-85 = 15
Now take the difference and divide it by the original number it went up from. So 15 /85 = 0.17647
To get the percentage, multiply that answer by 100 or move the decimal place 2 decimal places to the right. That would give you 17.647%. Then round it to the nearest percent or whole number. The answer is 18%
