where does the new pay info come from?

not sure where the new pay comes from?

I have both tried to add the other pay to the other and divide (wrong.) I have tried to subtract it and then divide (wrong) I subtract the 2 different pays from each other and then divide (wrong)

It looks like they want you to find $t$ such that

$40600 + 3200t > 47100+3000t$

can you do that?

Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
You seek $t$ such that $P_g \gt P_m$ where $P_g=40600+3200t$ and $P_m=47100+3000t$.

Just make $t$ the subject of the inequality.

yeah, I get it. Gotta remember that people generally write these things and who knows what goes through their heads when they are writing them.

Right ....Thanks again for helping me getting through this....since time is running out for me in my class, would hate to fail after 6 months of math and loss of money.
