Beth Pittman earns $12,558 per year. She is paid 52 times per year and claims 2 exemptions. If $8.85 in taxes is withheld from each paycheck, at what rate is she taxed? The answer options are: 3.9% 4.2% and 5.1%

12,558 / 52 = $241.50 per week 8.85 / 241.5 = 0.0366 = 3.7% I've worked this problem two ways, and I still get 3.7%.

12,558/52=$241.50 per week 8.85/241.5=0.0366=3.9%
