# Raise in Pay

Last year, the Riddledude received a 10% raise in salary (from RiddleDude, Inc.) but his partner Rodger suffered a 10% cut in salary. This year, The Riddledude got a 10% cut while Rodger got a 10% raise. Who’s making more money now?

• if you were making the same amount of money to begine with you make the same now.

• You nailed it, Carole!

Both the same. Let’s say we both started out at 1000 dollars per week. I received a 10% raise so now I’m making \$1,100 per week. Rodger suffered a 10% cut so now he’s making \$900 per week. This year, I (who makes 1100, remember) suffer a 10% cut, which puts me down to \$990 While Rodger (who is making 900 per week) gets a 10% raise, so now he’s making – you guessed it — \$990.00.

Congratulations, you’re today’s winner.
