A new law requires that 15 of an individual’s income be invested in the stock market. Your accounts show that you need to put \$435 in the stock market this year. How much did you earn this year?

\$5,040
\$350
\$504
\$3,500

Refreshing this question, I got \$3,500, but, I don't know if it's correct.

1. Well, you could have checked if 15% of 3500 is 435

btw, all of the given answers are incorrect

435/.15 = 2900

check: 15% of 2900
= .15(2900) = 435
