    65 000 ... 100%

    3 000 ... x%

    65000*x = 100*3000

    65*x = 300

    x = 300/65 = 4.61538%

    after solving this proportion we see that the raise is 4.61538%

    it is not clear to me up to what digit it needs to be rounded so i will offer several answers and you pick the one you need:

    5%, 4.6%,4.62%.
