math please break it down

Your gross income is $4,520.00/month. Your deductions are FICA (7.65%),federal tax withholding (11.75%), and state tax withholding (8.5%). Your fixed expenses are 30% of your realized income. You saved 5 months' worth in an emergency fund, placing 75% in a 60-day CD at a 5.45% APR and the rest in a regular savings account at a 3.8% APR. What is the total amount of your emergency fund? How much is in the CD and savings account? How much is the total interest earned between both accounts in 60 days?

  2. first, compute your income:
    4520)(1-.0765-.1175-.085)=
    then, income after expenses
    Incomeabove*(1-.40)
    then, emergency fund
    (ncomeafterexpensesabove)*5
    hten the investments
    Let Cd investmetn= CD
    let regular savings acct=RSA
    (remember, RSA+CD=emergencyfundabove

    Now we are to the math.
    CD=.75*emergencyfund*
    RSA=.23*emergencyfind

    interest earned:
    CD*.0545*2/12
    RSA*.038*2/12
    Note the 2/12 represents 60 days.

    check all this.

  5. 4520- 7.65- 11.75- 8.5 = 3258.90 x .30 = 977.68--- 977.68 x 5 = 4888.40 ( Emergency)--- .75 x 4888.40= 3666.30 ( CD)-------- .25x4888.40= 1222.10 ( Saving Acc)

    is that correct so far?Also
    would I add the cd interest and the saving together?
