the difference between the numbers is not how you determine the 10% max increase or difference. it's 10% of your 1st year contract, which in this case is .238, not .24
which means your second year salary can only be 2.618, and therefore your bid is 2.499.
from kal: average salaries don't have to be 2 decimals only, but they have to be rounded down to 2 decimals, towards lower value
, correctly, or they'll be considered invalid. therefore that bid you made is only worth 2.49 M.
