#### In the year 2020, Mary earned a monthly salary of $48,200, with 14% of that amount being deducted for income taxes. Her monthly pay in 2021 was $51,800, with 16% of that amount being deducted for income taxes. What was her typical take-home income from 2020 to 21?

Explanation:

The take-home wage for each of the two years, 2020 and 2021, must first be determined.

Mary made the following tax payments in 2020: $48,200 x .14 = $6,748

$48,200 - $6,748 = $41,452 take-home pay for 2020

Mary made the following tax payments in 2021: $51,800 x .16 = $8,288

$51,800 - $8,288 = $43,512

To find the average for the two years, add $41,452 and $43,512 and then divide by 2:

$41,452 + $43,512 = $84,964

$84,964 Ã· 2 = $42,482

#### Officer Berman covered 1,320 miles on his patrol motorcycle over the course of ten days. How many miles did he average per day if he traveled 105 miles in one day?

Divide 1,215 by nine days to find the average per day:

1,215 Ã· 9 = 135 miles per day
