#### 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?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
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
