##### Mmm..free goo.
tell me about it...the numbers just didnt work out...so i just wrote down how i would do it if the numbers did actually work out.
or maybe we're all wrong...most likely

Yes I got this one...you have to work out the tax from both jobs put together, not separately, as I was doing for a while before I realised my mistake.

Total Tax was like \$19300 or something

At the top it says She pays \$14410.80 tax on this income.

So \$19300 - 14410.80 = 4889.20

Tax on 2nd job = \$4889.20

Her 2nd Job gross income is 900 x 12 = \$10800

Her NET annual income for job 2 = 10800 - 4889.20
=5910.80

5910.80 divided by 12 = \$492.56

Which is pretty close to the monthly net income (obviously it would be right if i had the exact total Tax figure down instead of just using 19300\$.

total income from two jobs = 69424
total tax payable on both jobs = 19373.52
minus tax from income = 50050.45
net income from job 1 = 58624 - 14410.0 = 44213.2
take 44213.2 from 50050.45 and you get the net income for job 2, which is 5837.28
divide by 12 months = 486.44

lol i got the same thing in the 800-900's lol

But for 24biv

I did my answer for my amount and she got like 30 000 or something so i was like sure she'd have enough. Then i looked at the time thought for a moment and did the calculations for \$486.44 and wrote them down too..

So i wonder if they'll take that. Because i wrote "if in fact her monthly net income is \$486.44 then she still would have enough for her trip" and did the working and stuff..

I hope i get marks!!

Yep, I didn't realise we needed to take her 1st job into account, oh well. At least I got the other two points (for iv) I just assumed that the ppl who wrote the paper were right about her net income (otherwise what would be the point? LOL) and used that number.

I screwed up b)iii - got something like \$800 and something, and then used that for b)iv, would i get anyhting for that, if ive done the calculations right?

##### New Member
With the bit about 900.. alot of people I know thought that was her annual gross income, rather than her monthly gross income.

I screwed up the entire section.

I may have gotten full marks for part (a) and part (b)(iv), but i lost a definite 9 marks for the rest... I got thrown right off track for that question.
