A man earned $3000 the first year he worked. if he received a raise of $400 at the end of each year, what was his salary during his 15th year?

would it be $9000

    Yes, $9,000 at the END of the 15th year but not DURING the 15th year. Wouldn't that be $3,000 + (14 x 400) = $8,600. Check my thinking.
