Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you must find out how much your coworker makes. Since they make 10% more than you, you need to multiply your wage by 1.1, since 0.1 is 10% of 1. After doing this, find the percentage difference between your new wage and their wage. Your wage increase of 57.49% is computed by \[100\left(\dfrac{127.62}{7.62}\right)\] so think in terms of this to find the percentage difference between your coworker's and your wage.
