To understand how to use percentage increase or addition in a real-life example, let's consider an individual's salary increment. Suppose John's annual salary was $50,000, and he received a 10% increase. To calculate his new salary, we multiply the original salary by 10% (or 0.10) and add it to the original amount: • Salary increase =$50,000 * 0.10 = $5,000 • New salary =$50,000 + $5,000 =$55,000

In this case, John's salary increased by 10% or $5,000, resulting in a new salary of$55,000.
