To calculate 3.5 % rise, simply multiply 0.035 with the beginning number and you will get the raise amount. For example if you get a salary of $ 1500 then a 3.5 % raise is calculated as:

1500 × 0.035

= $52.5

This is the raise amount; now add this to 1500 and you will get $ 1552.5 which is the new salary.

1500 × 0.035

= $52.5

This is the raise amount; now add this to 1500 and you will get $ 1552.5 which is the new salary.
