# I swear, nobody knows this answer.

Your realized income from your primary job is \$2,034.24/month. Your fixed expenses are 30% of your primary job’s realized income. You have a 2nd job that pays \$9.50/hr with deductions of FICA (7.65%), federal tax withholding (11.5%), and state tax withholding (7.75%). If you want to save enough in the next 10 months to have an emergency fund that will cover 5 months using only 20% of your discretionary monies from your primary job, how many hours per month do you need to work at your 2nd job to meet your monthly savings goals?

2. I did this for "Lucy" a while ago.

expenses = 0.30*2034.24 = 610.27
Since both jobs are taxed, you want
10[(2034 + 9.50x)*(1-(11.5+0.775)/100) - 610.27]*0.20 = 5*610.27
double-check my figures and solve for x.

I ask how he got his results because maybe I can help show what went wrong.
Heck, it's even possible that I made a mistake, and I can learn from his work.
If he's unwilling to show his calculations, I have to assume he's just guessing.
