So this one says each week. Alice's gross salary is nine dollars an hour for the first forty hours she works and fifteen dollars an hour for each hour. She works in excess of forty hours. So basically what that means is she's doing forty hours times nine dollars for the first, But then we know this is basically her overtime pay right here. So then we can say that much is her base pay plus whatever extra, which so that we can call be extra, additional hours X and then we're going to subtract forty from it. Because, for instance, if she worked forty seven total hours, we're gonna have to subtract forty from it to know how much additional hours that she worked. Which means X is the total number of hours that Alice works. Okay, so then, for that, we're going to multiply that by fifteen dollars because that's her overtime pay on DH. Then we know that that is going to be Let's seize. That's goingto end up being three hundred sixty class fifteen X men minus fifteen times forty, which is six hundred When then. So that is going to become fifteen x minus two forty since fifteen next minus two forty. Okay, so then we know her net pay is her gross pay less the following deductions. A flat fee of twenty dollars for her contribution to her health insurance. A present of her gross salary for payroll taxes and fifteen percent of her gross pay for withholding taxes. Which of the following expressions represents analysis Net pay in a week a week. Where she works X Hours or X is greater than forty son From here, we know that she has to take out a present for payroll tax pretty and then fifteen percent for withholding tax, and that adds up to twenty three percent. So that means that if she it has to take out, twenty three percent ultimately weaken Do one hundred minus the twenty three to see how much she's actually getting. So she's only really taking home seventy seven percent of her income. Since this is her total income, we could multiply that by zero point seven seven, But then we also have the flat fee for her health insurance, so we have to subtract the twenty dollars. This should be our total ah amount for Alice, which is going to be C. So be careful not to do it by point twenty three, because, I mean, she's only taking home like twenty three percent of her income, which would be really sad income.
