Hungryhippo do you see logic here?

with 15% rise monthly sal is 812 so with 10%( which is less than 15%) salary would be 3080? :roll:

Hi,

770 is the Monthly salary and not weekly salary. That is what they trying to say i believe.

What we need to get is 16 % increase in Weekly salary we proportionally increase the Monthly salary by 16%

Ex : WS = 100 increased by 10% WS = 110 . Increase is 10 %
MS = 400 will get increasd to MS = 440 . Increase is 10%.

116/100 * (x) = 812

x = 700

10% increase would give $770
