\[ I_n=\text{income}\text{deductions}\\ I=$8.35{\rm/hr}\times16{\rm hr}=$133.6\\ I_n=$133.6\left[{(7.65+9.15+7.5)\over100}\times$133.6$6.30\times4\right]\\ I_n=? \]

7.65+9.15+7.5 over 100 do i divide it by 100 or how do i do that portation
 11 months ago

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what portation? whenever you see a percent, you divide that by 100

electrokidBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so, to convert the total percent deduction, you add the percentages and divide it by 100
