Answer:20%

Step-by-step explanation:

rate of increase = (change in value/ original value) * 100

we first find the change in price = new price – old price = 18.60 – 15.50 = 3.10.

Next we’ll divide the above value, by the original value = 3.10/15.50 = 0.2.

lastly we multiply 0.2 with 100 = 20%

So Bruce’s new wage increased by 20%Answer:20% is the right anser
