* The worker is currently getting 12.00 per hour.

* With 3% increase i.e 3/100 X 12 = 0.36 per hour (its the increased amount)

* Hence now the total wage would be = initial amount + increased amount = 12 + 0.36 = 12.36 per hour.

Answer = 12.63 per hour.

3% of 12 is calculated as follows:

12 / 100 = 0.12 = 1%

0.12 x 3 = 0.36 rise per hour.

or

12 x 0.03 = 0.36

So you will now earn 12.36 per hour!

That is a 36 cents an hour increase which comes to 12.00 + 0.36 = $12.36

therefor a total of 12.36 an hour after your 3 percent increase.

To figure out your raise simply multiply 12.00 by .03. Your answer is .36. Add it to your hourly wage and your new hourly wage is $12.36.

...After your wage increase you would be making 12.36 an hour. The increase would be .36 cents.
