Hi Kylie, given the starting salary of $35,600 and a yearly raise of $1230, you can use an arithmetic series to find the salary for any given year.

Arithmetic series:

A_{n} = A_{0} + d * (n - 1)

Where:

A_{n} = the total of n years

A_{0} = the initial salary

d = difference

n = number of years

Year A_{0} d n A_{n}
