Joe received an hourly wage of $8.15. His boss gave him a 7% raise. How much does Joe make per hour now?
Detailed Explanation
To calculate the new wage, start off by multiplying 8.15 × 0.07 = 0.57. Then add that number (the amount of Joe’s raise) to his original hourly wage. Joe’s new hourly wage is 8.15 + 0.57 = 8.72.
