Pedro earns 7.50 dollars an hour at his job at Matrix Cinemas. If he works 20 hours this week and his employer withholds a total of 22 percent of his weekly pay for taxes and Social Security, what is his take-home pay for the week?
100 - 22 = 78 % take home
.78 * 7.50 $/h * 20 hposted by Damon
7.5 * 20 = $150
150 - (150 * 0.22) = $_______ take home pay
thats wrongposted by jack
Ohhh? Damon and I did the problem in different ways but got the same answer. What is wrong with our answer?
