Answer:

#(107x)/(100) = 1.07x#

Explanation:

Let's give a general answer to this question as no values are given.

Let's call the salary before the increase #$x#

#x# represents the full salary - which is #100%#

If this is increased by #7%#, the new amount will be:

#(100% +7%)# of #x#

New salary = #(107x)/(100)#

This can also be give as a decimal: #1.07x#
