Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, let's say you did. If you made $8 an hour, how much would you make in 5 hours?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. That would be your gross pay. Now, looking back at the question, can you calculate your gross (pretax) pay?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, good. That is your gross pay. Had it asked for net pay, you would need to calculate and subtract taxes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks and i have 1 more quick question how would i solve this [problem ? Your parttime job pays $8.35/hr and your deductions are FICA (7.65%), federal tax withholding (10.25%), and state tax withholding (7.15%). You work for 12 hours. What is your net hourly wage?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so now it wants your *net* pay per hour. You'll need to factor in taxes. The only thing is, I don't know how US taxes work, so you'll need to look into them to see if one is deducted before the others, or if they all come off simultaneously.
