Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Initial salary is 50, 000 for the 1st year, 3 % of 50,000 is 15,000.. so for the 2nd year, 50,000 + 3% raise (15,000) = 65,000 so for the 3rd year is getting the 3% of 65,000 then add them up. Once you get the final answer get the 3% of that and repeat the steps until you reached the 10th year.
