**Feliz**, Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 10:45amFind the amount of tax for a single taxpayer with taxable income of $40,000.

Let x = 40,000 in the expression and simplify.

4420 + 0.25 (40,000 - 30,650)

4420 + 0.25(9350)

4420 + 2337.5 = $6757.5...assuming that you placed your parentheses correctly in the expression above.

==================================

The question tells us that "...x is over $30,650 but not over $74,200.

So, the expresison given cannot be applied to the married couple because their taxable income is over $74.200.

For two single taxpayers with taxable income of $40,000, we just found out that one single taxpayer will be taxed

$6757.5 and so, if you multiply $6757.5 times 2 you will a total tax of

$13,515.

I would say that since $80,000 does not apply to the given formula, two single taxpayers whose taxable income is $40,000 will pay less than a married couple or a single person whose taxable income is greater than $74,200.

I hope this helps.
