    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

    Let x = his former salary .05x = 2400 increase in salary (given) solve for x to get original aslary. add 2400 to get current salary.

    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?
