Nick received a $7000.00 raise. If his previous salary was 55000.00, what was the percent of increase in salary?
I put the answer as (A) 13%. The other possible answers are: (B) 1%, (C) 8%, (D) 14%. If my answer is not correct, Could please tell me what I'm doing wrong in figuring out the problem?
Thanks,
Carol
