**Damon**, Monday, October 20, 2008 at 5:46pmFirst - What percent is the new salary of the old salary?

100 * (84/12) = 700% Now that was not the question. The question was how much was the "raise" so we subtract off the original 100% and get 600% more than the original.

It is easier to understand if you just consider a 100% raise. That is a doubling so the new is 200% of the old.
