  1. 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.

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