Paycheck after deductions 
20140223 

From Louise: So I got a paycheck for 89.02 they took out in deductions 15.69.
I want to know the percentage they are taking out so that I can figure my take home pay each week before I get it. So I know what to expect for pay each week so I can budget my bills from now on a weekly basis. If I know the percentage than I can just figure out the percentage through how many hours in the week I worked and multiply my gross pay and know what my take home will be Answered by Penny Nom.

From Jim: I want to set up a spread sheet where i can enter my hourly pay or gross income,

take the amount of the deduction and try to figure out the % used to calculate the amount
for example gross pay $1359, EI= $64, Fed Tax=$129, Prov tax = $35
these numbers I have provided are random but I think you can get the idea Answered by Penny Nom.

From Rita: A store advertises that during its Labor Day sale $15 will be deducted from every purchase over $100. In addition, after the deduction is taken, the store offers an earlybird discount of 20% to any person who makes a purchase before 10 a.m. If Hakeem makes a purchase of x dollars,
x > 100, at 8 a.m., what, in terms of x, is the cost of Hakeem's purchase?
(1) 0.20x  15 (3) 0.85x  20
