Multiply percentage one by one with \$624, then add them to get total induction!

4. Chlorophyll

Add them together with the total induction!

Take-home pay period = \$624 - total inductions

8. Chlorophyll

This sentence makes no sense! " how much of the (?) will she have to take home?

9. Claire4christ

624x0.06=37.44

10. Chlorophyll

11. Claire4christ

how much will she take home

12. Claire4christ

624x0.0605=37.75

13. Chlorophyll
