Werner's salary is 20% of his boss's salary. By what percentage should Werner's salary increase to become equal to his boss's salary?

W = .2 B

W/.2 = B

  or    B = 5W      5 is 500%      this situation comes up often when dealing with % on this forum

                               while Boss's salary is 500% of Werner's it would take a 400% INCREASE from his present salary to match B

                                  i.e.    W + 400% * W = B

                                                5W = B
