    His new salary is  =  $ 43300 + increase in salary.

    His new salary is =  $43,300 +  9% of ( $43,300 )

    9% means  ( 9/100 )  =  0.09.  Hence -----

    His new salary is = $ 43,300 + ( 0.09 ) of ( $43,300 )

    => $ 43,300 + $ 3897

    =>  $ 47197  ..................... (ANSWER)

    The KEY here is that his new salary will include what he was making before his raise + the amount of his raise. So you'll take the $43,300 he's making now and then add the dollar amount of his raise to it.

    Raise amount = $43,300 x 9% = $_________

                                                     + $ 43,000 salary before his raise

                                                     = $ _________ salary after the raise

    New salary: 1.09 times 43,300 = $47,197

    raise+old salary=new salary

    (9/100)*430+43300=new salary

    3897+43300=47197

    Method I

    s = 43,300 * 1.09

    s = 47,197

    $47,197 < ––––––––

    ------------------

    Method II

    Amount of increase

    9% = .09

    43,300 * .09 = 3,897

    New salary = old salary  + increase

    New = 43,300 + 3,897

    New = 47,197

    $47,197 <––––––
