A clerk’s weekly salary of $320 is increased to $360. The percent increase is _________.
12.5%
10.5%
11%

Detailed Explanation
Subtract the original salary from the new salary to get the difference in salary: 360 – 320 = 40.
Then divide the difference in salary (40) by the original salary (320) to determine the percent increase: 40 ÷ 320 = 0.125 = 12.5%.
