Calculating Percentage Increase

A = Amount AfterwardsB = Amount BeforeP = Percentage Change
A = B * (1 + P)B = A / (1 + P)P = (A - B) / B
salary is B increased by P%salary is increased by P% to Asalary was B is now A (A > B)
P% more than B B increased to A
B plus P%  

Calculating Percentage Decrease

A = Amount AfterwardsB = Amount BeforeP = Percentage Change
A = B * (1 - P)B = A / (1 - P)P = (B - A) / B
salary is B decreased by P%salary is decreased by P% to Asalary was B is now A (B > A)
