# Business Math: How to Calculate Pay Raise by Percentage

When it’s time for annual performance reviews, if you plan on including pay raises, you need to know the simple math behind calculating pay increases correctly. Raises can be based on any number of things including a worker’s piers, standard industry rates, length of time on the job, the amount of work to do, and even whether or not the boss likes the employee or not. There are few, if any, laws that govern how and when increases are granted, so it’s up to you to determine what you’re willing to give.

Timesheets.com has a free pay raise calculator that can help.

## Calculating the Percentage

Generally, you will want to increase their pay by some percentage. The national average pay increase generally hovers between 3% to 3.5% depending on the year. The trend is to reward top performers with a higher than average pay raise and average workers with lower pay raises.

I have written about percentage before – in the post about calculating sales tax – now we’ll relate percentage to pay increases.

When your employee is ready for a pay increase, decide what percentage is fair and then do the following calculation:

(current rate)(percent increase)=(increase)

### Step 1: Convert the percentage into decimal form

This is pretty basic, but you need to convert the percentage into a real number that you can use to multiply by the employee’s current pay rate. To do this, simply move the decimal two places to the left. For a 3% increase, you will use .03.

### Step 2: Multiply the employee’s current pay rate by that decimal

If your employee makes \$15/hour, then you have: 15x.03=.45. So your employee’s increase is 45 cents per hour. For an employee who makes a salary of \$45,000/year, then you have: 45,000x.03=1,350. So your salaried employee’s pay increase is \$1,350 per year.

## Why You Have to Convert the Percent

This is just a little theory and not needed to do the problem.

The percent symbol is used to tell you something about the number it sits beside. Percent means ‘parts per hundred’. So if a % sign sits beside a 3, it really means 3 parts per 100. You don’t need to know this to calculate a pay increase but it might help you to understand why you need to convert the percent into decimal form to begin with. 3% tells us we need to multiply our pay rate by 3 pieces of a hundred.

Do you remember what the decimal places mean? The first decimal place is the tenths place and the second is the hundredths place. This is why when we convert our percent we have to move two places – we have to open up the hundredths place.

## Automatic Pay Raise Calculations

The Human Resources Documents within the Timesheets.com time tracking service calculates pay raise percentage as well as keeps record of changes. Record keeping is required by the FLSA for all sorts of things related to payroll.

Can you tell me I currently make 10:50 dollars an hour just got 3% pay raise what will my new hourly wage be.

September 11, 2015 - 8:11 am

Sure Kathy. I can help you. Find 3% of \$10.50 per hour by multiplying 10.5 by .03. That equals .315. So your new hourly wage will be \$10.50 + .315 = \$10.815

I am getting a 2% raise at 11.35.57 an hour.this will be retro from November 2016.how much is this?

April 18, 2020 - 12:41 am

If your hourly rate is (X) dollars, then you plug your raise percent amount (Y) into the following equation (use a calculator if you wish):

(X)*(1+((Y)/100) )=(New Pay)

Example: Current pay=\$(10) per hour ; raise of (5%), the following equation illustrates this formula:

(10)*(1+((5)/100))=
10+0.5=
\$10.50 dollars per hour

Hi, if i get pay increase of 2 % on \$37K salary a year then how much will I make at the end of 5 years at 2% annual increase?

October 19, 2017 - 3:20 pm

that’s a \$740 increase per year. x 5 = \$ 3,700 at the end of 5yrs.

September 17, 2018 - 11:34 pm

So the change in the yearly amount doesn’t increase the 2% increase each year. How does the 2% increase stay the same all 5 years? I would think that in year two the 2% is mutliplied by \$37,740 instead of \$37,000 and so on. Please help….

I am getting a 3% raise on \$1843, what will I be making after that?

July 27, 2020 - 8:46 am

First, you need to multiply your current rate by the decimal value of your raise percentage. 1843 x 0.03 = 55.29. Next, add your current wage to the previous value you calculated to get your new wage. So, \$1843 + \$55.29 = \$1898.29.

November 8, 2019 - 5:42 pm

\$37,000.00 x 2% = \$740.00 increase year 1 – end of year 1 total \$37,740.00
\$37,740.00 x 2% = \$754.80 increase year 2 – end of year 2 total \$38,494.80
\$38,494.80 x 2% = \$769.90 increase year 3 – end of year 3 total \$39,264.70
\$39,264.70 x 2% = \$785.29 increase year 4 – end of year 4 total \$40,049.99
\$40,049.99 x 2% = \$801.00 increase year 5 – end of year 5 total \$40,850.99

April 23, 2020 - 5:55 am

Hey i make 19hr and got a 25 percent raise how much is that

April 24, 2020 - 4:21 pm

First you will multiply your current hourly wage by the decimal value of your raise (19.00 X 0.25= 4.75). You will then add the total to your hourly wage (4.75 + 19.00= 23.75). Your new hourly wage is \$23.75.

Increase pay if 2.5 i get payed 14.40 how much would that be?

November 1, 2019 - 3:46 pm

I assume you are referring to a 2.5% increase on a \$14.40 hourly wage. If that’s not correct, please clarify so I can assist you further. First, you will convert 2.5% into decimal form, which is 0.025. You will then multiply the decimal increase by your current hourly wage, which is 0.025 X 14.40 = 0.36. Add 0.36 to 14.40, and you’ll get a total of \$14.76/hour

September 25, 2017 - 7:11 pm

September 17, 2018 - 11:38 pm

It should be an .2625 increase.
10.50 * .025 or 2.5% = .2625
10.50+.2625= \$10.7625 an hour

June 7, 2018 - 10:52 pm

Can you help me with mine please? I make 10.89 and just got a 6.25% raise

September 5, 2019 - 6:36 pm

can you tell me what
A worker earns ​\$29.50 per hour. If she receives a 9 and one half
​% pay​ raise, what is the amount of her hourly​ raise?

September 5, 2019 - 9:15 pm

You would multiply the employee’s current hourly wage by the decimal value of 9.5%. \$29.50 X 0.095(raise) = 2.8025. The employee will get an increase of \$2.8025 per hour, which totals to \$32.3025 per hour.

September 14, 2019 - 1:09 pm

So i have a question towards ur answer lets say its 3.5% and pay is 10 65 it would be .035 right so 10.65 + .372

September 17, 2019 - 1:42 pm

Yes, that is correct. You will get a \$0.372 raise, making the hourly rate \$11.023

March 12, 2020 - 12:58 pm

I use to make 13.33 hr I got 3% raise so what’s my new salary rate?

March 18, 2020 - 4:44 pm

First you need to multiply your current hourly rate by the decimal value or your raise percentage (\$13.33 x 0.03= 0.3999). Next, you’ll add the total value to your current hourly rate (\$13.33+\$0.3999= \$13.72/hr). To find your yearly salary, you need to multiply your new hourly rate by the amount of hours that you’re going to work in the year. Now, assuming that you’re full-time and work every day, you’re expected to work about 2,080 hours each year. 2080 X 13.72= ~\$28,537 annual salary.

April 25, 2019 - 3:17 am

I got 1 percent raise every six months for 1 year what was my actual raise for the year

April 25, 2019 - 12:37 pm

You need to multiply your hourly wage or salary by 1 percent (0.01). For example, if you make \$15/hr and get a 1% raise at the end of 6 months, you will multiply 15 X .01. That equals 0.15. Your pay after 6 months would be \$15.15.

April 21, 2016 - 10:09 am

I make 9.76 anf gonna get a 2% raise how much will I make

April 26, 2016 - 3:06 pm

Hello Beverly. Multiply your hourly rate by .02 and you get 19 cents. So your new hourly rate will be \$9.95 per hour.

August 31, 2018 - 1:14 pm

Hello, Can you help me? I have employees that work 40 hour weeks and this is not an issue for their percentage of increase. I also have compressed workers that receive 4 hours of OT every day they work. How can I figure out the percentage to give them in comparison to the 40 hour a week employee?

June 22, 2019 - 3:27 am

Good morning
I make 14.21 an hour. I just received a 2% raise. How much will i be making an hour

June 24, 2019 - 3:48 pm

You will want to multiply your hourly wage by the decimal value of your increase. In this case, you would multiply 14.21 X 0.02 = 0.2842. Add your current hourly wage to this number 14.21 + 0.2842 = 14.49. Your new wage would be \$14.49.

I’m confused ok if I get 752 in ssi and I get an increase of 1.6% how much is that

October 14, 2019 - 11:14 am

I’m unfortunately not familiar with SSI, but I can tell you that a 1.6% increase of 752 is 12.032. So, all together you’re looking at a change from 752 to 764.032.

June 15, 2016 - 2:03 pm

i need to figure the equation differently. at an increase of \$.48 with a 3.5% increase what is the rate of pay before ?

June 15, 2016 - 4:01 pm

Hi Johnny,

We can just plug in what we know to the formula and solve. Rate(%) = increase

R(.035) = .48

Now divide both sides by .035 to get R = .48/.035

R = 13.71

December 4, 2018 - 11:35 am

It’s a 10c raise

August 15, 2016 - 10:53 am

So, a 3% increase from 3189 would be \$95.67. Is that correct?

August 23, 2016 - 4:24 pm

That is correct.

September 17, 2018 - 11:40 pm

\$21

How do I figure 1.5% less per month. This year I am making 2018.30. I need last years figure.

October 29, 2016 - 6:39 am

Hi Kay,

This problem is a little different. Writing out the problem in words should help it make sense. 1.5% of your old salary was your raise last year so we are going to add that to your old salary to get your new salary.

(old salary) + 1.5%(old salary) = new salary

Let’s call the old salary x since we don’t know that value. And we’ll write 1.5% as a decimal to get:

x + .015x = 2018.30

Combine terms:

1.015x = 2018.30

Solve for x:

x = 2018.30/1.015

x = 1988.47

Last year’s salary was \$1988.47

October 25, 2016 - 4:57 pm

If I make 22.77 an hour and got a 3% increase how much will that be??

Plug in your numbers to the equation to get 13x=2.
Divide both sides by 13 to get .15
So it’s a 15% raise.

I am getting a 2.5% raise at 11.00 an hour how much is that

January 28, 2017 - 5:55 pm

lol you explain how to do it yet people ask you ……yet they can do it themselvs……….lol

March 14, 2018 - 1:09 pm

February 3, 2017 - 4:02 pm

I have a contract that states that I my increase of CPI cannot be more that 3.5%. Last years CPI .7 and this years CPI is 2.1. My fee last year was \$1.12. So the most I can increase would be \$1.12 * .035 = .0392 = .39 cents?

So last years fee was \$1.12 and I would increase by the maximum of .39 = 1.51?

February 18, 2017 - 9:53 pm

Hey just to make sure when you calculate your hours by how much you get an hour you use multiplication right?

February 22, 2017 - 11:06 am

Right. Hours x pay rate = pay.

Hi, Im making 13.00 dollars an hour. Im getting a 52 cents raise on the hour how do i calculate that.

December 24, 2019 - 8:27 am

Hi there. Since you’re making \$13.00 an hour and you’re getting a raise of \$0.52, you will add your raise to current hourly rat, which totals to \$13.52/hour.

February 22, 2017 - 8:32 am

If I make \$16 an hour and I got a 3,000 dollar a year raise, what is my new hourly rate?

Sorry, not sure if I’m doing this right because I’m not leaving a reply but would like to make new post.

Math & I have never been good friends.

I was making \$18 an hour but now make \$24 an hour getting a new job.

Would a percentage increase be %24 or %2.4?

Thank You

I get 1% of my salary for each year that I work. So if I work 35 years I will get 35% of my salary. What if I work 35 years, and eight months would that be 35.8 percent of my salary?

April 13, 2017 - 2:13 pm

It’s not this simple. You need to use the compound interest formula to get an accurate number. For example, if you make 20,000 per year, your first raise will be \$200. The next year your raise will be \$202 and the next it will be 204.02 and so on.

May 5, 2017 - 2:27 am

My husband is getting ready to be laid off at the end of the month instead of trying to live off unemployeement he found a job that is a \$5 cut in pay. He’ll make 15.53 a hour the 1st 3months then goes to 17 an hour. They give a 2%raise based on what you have made in a certain time frame. How would I calculate that? Lets just say he’ll make 12000 in this time frame. How would this translate into an hourly increase?

May 6, 2017 - 1:28 pm

If my pay is \$13.20 and my increase is 1.5%

June 3, 2017 - 1:25 pm

If I’m being paid \$16 dollars an hour and got a pay increase of 2 dollars how would I calculate that?

June 5, 2017 - 6:51 am

Word the problem as follows: What percent of 16 is 2.
Write that out in math: x*16=2 –> x=16/2 –> x=.125

March 9, 2018 - 11:48 am

Hi. Thanks for helping people out. This reply does not work for me though as I dont the math you used and the symbols used such as x*. If you could include the reverse method in this article: how to calculate a pay raise increase not just by percentage but by the dollar/currency increment amount and how to word the problem and also explain it for us that are not good with math/math symbols that would really help a lot of people. For instance. I pay someone 14 per hour and if I want to pay them 19 per hour, I don’t know how to go about figuring the percentage out from this angle rather than what is explained in the article which only talks about things if we already know the perentage. The calculator only works based on percentage but we often need to know the other way around. Thanks much : )

I make 13.50 and was awarded 19.50% pay increase. How much will I nake

April 17, 2019 - 8:32 am

You will Multiply \$13.50 X .195 to get your pay increase. 13.50 X .195 = \$2.63 pay increase. \$13.50 + \$2.63 = \$16.13/hr

June 17, 2019 - 11:26 am

I make 35,000 a year and received a 2% raise how much is that

June 18, 2019 - 12:50 pm

You would multiply your annual salary by the decimal value of 2% (0.02). 35,000 x 0.02 = 700. This is a \$700 increase of your annual salary. 35,000 + 700 = 35,700 annually.

July 11, 2019 - 2:57 am

Hi,
I make \$23.95 per hour and I got offer \$5000 increase in a year. How much increase will that be per hour?

Thank you,
Silvia

July 11, 2019 - 4:07 pm

Hi Silvia. Assuming you work the expected 2080 hours a year, and with \$23.95/hour, you make about \$49,816 (\$23.95 x 2080 hours= 49,816) without a tax decrease. Now, all you have to do is add your annual income to your increase. \$5,000 + \$49,816= \$54,816 a year without a tax decrease.

July 22, 2019 - 4:17 pm

I’m getting a 4% increase and I make 31.95

July 25, 2019 - 1:44 pm

If that is the case, you will multiply the decimal value of 4% by 31.95. 0.04(raise) X 31.95(current hourly pay) = 1.278 Increase. Add the increase to your current wage and you will get 32.228 per hour

September 26, 2019 - 5:37 am

Could you please explain what a pay raise of 4.5% over 9 months mean

October 3, 2019 - 2:41 pm

If you spread out 4.5% over 5 months, you will get about a 0.5% raise every month for 9 months. For example, let’s say you’re getting paid \$10 an hour and you want to know how much you’ll be making next month with your 0.5% raise. You will multiply \$10 by 0.005 (the decimal value of 0.5%), and you get a total of 0.05. This means next month you will get paid \$10.05.

November 21, 2019 - 8:56 am

Good morning,

I need help figuring this out. currently at \$20.00 with a 15% increase.

Thank you!

November 22, 2019 - 12:41 pm

Hi, you will need to multiply your hourly wage by the decimal value of 15%, and then add the total to your current hourly wage. \$20.00 X .15= \$3.00 increase. \$20.00 + \$3.00 = \$23.00 per hour

December 15, 2019 - 5:51 am

Hi. Can someone help me calculate this average hourly rate for me please:

Salary: \$80,000.00
Hourly rates: \$28, \$22, \$22, \$18, \$20, \$12, \$12, \$12, \$15, \$15, \$12
Average hourly rate:

December 16, 2019 - 3:08 pm

First off, the hourly wage for an employee who earns \$80,000 a year is ~\$38.46 per hour. The average of the hourly rates you provided are calculated by adding all of the numbers together and dividing the total by the amount of digits you provided. 28+22+22+18+20+12+12+12+15+15+12= 188. 188/11= 17.09. The average hourly rate is \$17.09.

If I was working for \$7.20 per hour and got a 25% rais what would my pay be now

April 17, 2020 - 11:34 am

First, you need to multiply your currently hourly rate by the decimal value of the percentage (\$7.20 X 0.25= 1.8). Then, add the value to your hourly wage (\$7.20 + 1.8= \$9.00). Your new hourly wage is \$9.00 an hour.

April 24, 2020 - 1:01 pm

If I have an increase of 3.1% on my raise and it is now 8.00 dollars what was my previous salary

April 28, 2020 - 5:03 pm

First, you’ll need to multiply your current hourly wage by the decimal value of your raise (\$8.00 X 0.031= 0.248). Next, you’ll subtract the new decimal value from your current hourly wage (\$8.00 – 0.248= 7.752). Your previous hourly wage was \$7.752/hour

June 4, 2020 - 1:08 pm

After receiving a rise of 5% of my previous wages.i now earns \$800. What will be my previous wage?

June 17, 2020 - 10:38 am

If you earn \$800 a week now, your original pay rate was \$761.90.

July 26, 2020 - 10:54 am
