HELP! Can anyone tell me these answers please? 1) Increase 20kg by 8% 2) Write 2.03 x 10 to the power of minus one as an ordinary number?

Percent is literally "Per cent" - 1/100th ratio, like cents on the dollar or pence on the pound.
As in, a dollar increased by 8% is $1.08
For any other value to be changed by a percentage, image you are doing it for a dollar or 1.00 then multiply or divide by that amount, as appropriate.
20 x 1.08 = 21.6
... x 10^something is simply shifting the decimal point.
-1 means shift it one place to the left:
2.03 x 10^-1 = 0.203

Yes, I CAN do 3rd grade math in my head.
NO, I don't intend to do your homework.
You actually asked if anyone CAN, not for the answer to you homework questions.
