Allen was earning $30,000 working for a small business. The business had a bad year, and Allen was asked to take a 10% cut in pay with the assurance that he would receive a 10% increase in salary the following year. If Allen agreed, what would be his salary in 2 years?

OK. Aleah and all of your aliases  it's your turn now. How do you think you should solve this problem?
Please post what you think  and we'll be glad to check it. 
30000*10%= 3000
300003000=27000
30000+10%=33000
30000+20%=36000
In two years, his salary will be $36,000. 
That's a good try.
However, you need to use his reduced salary as a base.
27,000 * 1.1 = 29,700 the first year
29,700 * 1.1 = 32,670 
Thanks!

You're welcome.
