Based on deductions made for tax and NI, and 9% loan repayments on any salary over £15000.

how much must a salary be, so that after all deductions, there is a net monthly income of atleast

a)1500 b)2000 c)2500

If anyone knows how to deal with this sort of problem, if there is a formula? (It says in the 'hint' that 'given such formulae completing the calculation is straighforward'

Many Thanks
