**Michael**, Sunday, November 11, 2007 at 9:52pmWrite equations to model the situation.

j=50+.01p

c=p-(50+.01p)

where p is the daily profit, j is Jack's salary, and c is Clay's salary

Since their salaries will be the same, set j equal to c.

50+.01p = p-(50+.01p)

Solve the equation for p, and you should get $102.04.
