Write 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.

Wait, you said .1 percent... that would be ".001p" rather than ".01p" unless you meant 1 percent.
