SELECT ename, sal FROM emp WHERE job = 'MANAGER';

 ename |   sal
-------+---------
 JONES | 2975.00
 BLAKE | 2850.00
 CLARK | 2450.00

UPDATE emp SET sal = sal * 1.1 WHERE job = 'MANAGER';

SELECT ename, sal FROM emp WHERE job = 'MANAGER';

 ename |   sal
-------+---------
 JONES | 3272.50
 BLAKE | 3135.00
