Easy way,
Take the highest & lowest values in the table,
= (3.96+2.52)/(420+288)*100.
= 6.48/708 * 100.
= 0.9 ~ 1.

Easy
17/1710*100,
= 17/171 *10,
= 17 * 10/171.
= 170/171.
= 1.
17/1710*100,
= 17/171 *10,
= 17 * 10/171.
= 170/171.
= 1.

Let,
Total Bonus = x% of salary.
17 = 1710 (x%).
17 = 1710 (x/100).
Now, solving for x,
x = 1700/1710 = 0.99 = 1% (approximately).
Total Bonus = x% of salary.
17 = 1710 (x%).
17 = 1710 (x/100).
Now, solving for x,
x = 1700/1710 = 0.99 = 1% (approximately).

The total bonus is what % of total salary.
Total salary* (x/100)= total bonus.
1710* (x/100)= 17.
x/100=17/1710.
x=(17/1710 )*100.
1%.
Total salary* (x/100)= total bonus.
1710* (x/100)= 17.
x/100=17/1710.
x=(17/1710 )*100.
1%.
