a worker makes 30000 a year. after 1 year he gets a raise of 5%. the next year he gets a raise of 10%. If he received no raise the first year, what percent increase would give him the same salary as consecutive raises of 5% and 10%?
would it be 50%

Nope! A 50% increase would give him a salary of $45,000.
30,000 * 1.05 = 31,500
31,500 * 1.1 = 34,650
34,650  30,000 = 4650
4,650/30,000 = 0.155 = 15.5%
