Thanks Civonamuk ,

Here is another way to tackle this question. :)

6% is   57c

1% is   57/6 cents

100% is    57/6*100cents

$${\frac{{\mathtt{57}}}{{\mathtt{6}}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{100}} = {\mathtt{950}}$$   cents

original pay was   $9.50 per hour Melody Apr 24, 2015 #1 0 can u plz answer my question Guest Apr 23, 2015 #2 +1068 +5 ////////////////////////////////////// civonamzuk Apr 23, 2015 #3 +94081 +5 Best Answer Thanks Civonamuk , Here is another way to tackle this question. :) 6% is 57c 1% is 57/6 cents 100% is 57/6*100cents $${\frac{{\mathtt{57}}}{{\mathtt{6}}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{100}} = {\mathtt{950}}$$ cents original pay was$9.50 per hour
