.Um I don't feel like explaining but I can give you what I THINK the equation is:

"x" represents her last year's salary...

(.12) (3000 + x) = 4200

\$4,200 / .12 =\$35,000 her salary this year.

\$35,000 - \$3,000=\$32,000 Her salary last year.

An equation representing this would look  something like this:

S=(C/I) - R, where, S=her salary last year, C=amount of her savings, I= rate of her savings, R=salary increase.
