Right. That would be your gross pay. Now, looking back at the question, can you calculate your gross (pre-tax) pay?

Yes, good. That is your gross pay. Had it asked for net pay, you would need to calculate and subtract taxes.

thanks and i have 1 more quick question how would i solve this [problem ? Your part-time 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?

Okay, 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.
