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%.
