Answer

You should take the \$20 raise.

Work Step by Step

Find the monetary value of the 20% raise. Convert 20% to a decimal by moving the decimal 2 places to the left. Multiply by the base salary to find the dollar amount of the 20% raise. $80\times0.20=16$ A 20% raise is \$16, so the \$20 raise is larger.
