You have to kind of work backwards for this.
yea im lost on how to figure it out
Ok I will try to guide you through this.
Hmm... Sorry, give me a minute. I need to think of how to start. XD
ok this is me brandi2586. I wanted to get on my other account
The salary last year shouldn't have a big difference from this year, because it is a 0.02% difference.
\(\sf a \times 1.02 = 37,740\) Solve for a
and that's all
I was waiting to see how you would attempt it, but you seemed confused so I decided to lend a hand :)
Thanks. :) You worded it better than I could have.
we started with 100 parts, and then added 2 more parts to get to where we are now; so we have 102 parts. we could divide it into its 102 parts, and add up 100 of them to determine the original amount ....
You can just divide it to solve. This is working backward. So: 37,470/1.02 = answer
