An employee received a raise of $15,000 and now earns $90,000. What was the percent increase
If an employee received a raise of $15,000 and now earns $90,000, then the percentage increase in income was 45.90%. To find the percentage increase, say that $15,000 was 100% and then multiply $15,000 by $19,000 and divide by 100.
That's a 20% increase. He was making 75,000 before the raise. He got a 15,000 raise. To find the percentage, you multiply 15,000 with 100 then divide it by 75,000.
