In the year 2020, Sarah 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?
First, we have to determine the take-home pay for each of the two years, 2020 and 2021
In 2020, Mary paid the following in taxes: $48,200 x .14 = $6,748
$48,200 - $6,748 = $41,452 take-home pay for 2020
In 2021, Mary paid the following in taxes: $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 ÷ 2 = $42,482
