It would be 105% of s so 1.05s as you have all of the s you had before and an extra 0.05

Sorry the if isn't really an if it's just saying your starting salary was s it's just written if because you don't have a number that s is (sort of thing) It's an increase so you have 100% ( because that is the same as 1) plus the increase so you have 105% of what you started with s 105% of s is 1.05s Do you understand? I'm not very good with explaining in words sorry

You could write it as s*0.05 +s if that's easier to understand
