Moe earns 14 percent more than her husband Joe. Together they make 68000 per year. What is Joe’s annual salary?

I'm not sure if this is a proportional problem.

I think it's about sig figs for physics.

Let J be what Joe earns.

J + 1.14J = 2.14J = 68000.

J = 31,775.70

Round to three sig figs: $31,800.
