vickie earns $20,000 a year as a bookkeeper. if she receives a raise of 2%, how could her new total salary be represented?

20,000 + (0.02 * 20,000) = ?

i still don't get it

She makes 20,000 this year. She get's a raise of 2% next year, so she'll make more money next year.
2% = 0.02
Her raise: 0.02 * 20,000 = $400
Add her raise to her present salary to find the amount she'll make next year.
20,000 + (0.02 * 20,000) = 
0.02($20,000) + 20,000
