Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when it says "more" or "raise" or "increase" or anything like that, the fraction you're going to multiply is going to be greater than 1. like if it said i got paid $14 an hr, and i'm getting a 25% raise, then i would multiply 14 and 1.25 and it's the opposite to "less than" or "decrease" like if i got paid $14 an hr and i was getting a wage cut of 5%, then i'd multiply 14 and 0.95
