2214.64 is what I am thinking because 1,786 times 0.24 equals 428.64 and you just add that to 1,786 and get her original amount

Let's take a slightly different look at this situation. Let p = Tonya's gross pay. If 24% of that pay, p, is deducted, Tonya takes home $1,786. Therefore, p-0.24p=$1,786, or 0.76p = $1,786. Solve this for p by dividing both sides of the equation by 0.76.
