    ok so you have a total pay of 46350 you would then add 24% (because in the problem it says plus 24% of wages) then you would subtract the expenses because that is what you are paying for which is $2256 so the equation would look like this: $46,350+.24-$2,256

    then you take the two totals and subtract biggest from smallest to get how much greater.

    @Lauren32583 Your initial numbers are correct. Current Job:\[\sum_{}^{}Benefits=$46,350+0.24($46,350)-$2,256=$55,218\] Next Possible Job: \[\sum Benefits=$49,750+$3,980+$450+$1,080+$1,560+$2,100+$400\]\[-$2,624=$56,696\]
