    Answer:

    $41000

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If her salary was $1,000 more than the previous year and she save $4,200, $4,200 was 10% of her salary. So we should create an equation. (x being her salary from the previous year)

    0.1(x+1000)=4200 (divide 4200 by .01)

    x+100=42000

    42000-1000= 41000
