ok soo first multiply 2400 by 20 to get his normal pay before the raise then after you find the normal pay add 2400 to get the pay after the 5 percent salary rise
A 48,000 is his original pay
B 50,200 is after raise
Let x = his former salary
.05x = 2400 increase in salary (given)
solve for x to get original aslary.
add 2400 to get current salary.

Oh okay , thank you :)
I would think his current salary would be 50,400
You may think so, but here is proof:
.05x = 2400
x = 2400/.05 = 48,000 just as you calculated. That was his original salary.
Current salary will equal original salary plus the increase.
48,000 + 2,400 = 50,400 Now whats wrong with that?
