# Percentage increase, what is the original value

[From: ] [author: ] [Date: 11-05-19] [Hit: ]
what was the original wage?I dont need the answer, i just need how to figure it out.107.100%=?(100 * 807)\107.......
If someones wages were increased by say 7.8% resulting in \$807, what was the original wage?
I don't need the answer, i just need how to figure it out. Thanks :)

since the wage increased;
107.8% = \$807
100% =? by cross multiplying;
(100 * 807)\107.8

satisfied

If someones wages increased by 7.8%, the new amount they would make would be equal to
Original Wage + Original Wage x % Increase.

In other words, they would have (1 + % increase) x original wage = new wage

So for our example here, we need so solve for (1+0.078)(x) = 807

To solve for 'x', our original wage simply divide 807 by 1.078

accoring to me
7.8/100 of x=807 wherex is original value
78/1000x=807
x=807*1000/78
=10346.15.....

-
first 807 multiply by 7.8 then divide by 100 = 63 minus from \$807 = 744 is the answer.
