1. Let's see,

1/3=2/6=4/12=8/24

1/4=2/8=6/24

1/6=2/12=4/24

1/8=3/24

So the total percentage of his expences come down to:

21/24

That what remains is equal to \$1250:

3/24∗(Salary)=\$1250.

Salary=\$1250∗24/3=\$10000.

Then we have to calculate for taxes, where the rates in Holland are 52% if you're earning over some amount of €66.422 annually, which translates to \$72.921,39 as of the current rates. Thus the total salary becomes

\$10000/0.48=\$20833,33 per month.

(My joke)
It is impossible to tell.

Assuming John lives in the US, the question fails to account for state and federal income taxes (including social security, medicare and other applicable local taxes), which represent the difference between John's gross salary (the amount earned before taxes) and take-home pay (after taxes). Without knowing this variable (which is affected by the state he lives in, the number of exemptions he has claimed, whether he has reached any social security caps and the number of times he gets paid in a year), the calculation is impossible to derive.

If this is a homework question, you may wish to tell your teacher what I just said so that s/he can rephrase the question in a way that can be answered.

2. amount spent food, rent, tax, and fare
= (1/2 + 1/8 + 1/4 + 1/100)(80000)
= 70800 leaving him with 9200

saving (3/5) of that = (3/5)(9200) = 5520
