2. Re: Question on Salaries

1. Jade earns $40001, so she gets a 30% rebate. meaking her after-rebate cost 0.7 x 10K = 7000. So her net is 40,001 - 7000 =$33001.
2. Emily earns $38000, so she gets a 55% rebate, making her after-rebate cost 0.45 x 10K = 4500. So her net is 38000 - 4500 =$33500.
3. Lucy earns $29500, so she gets a 75% rebate plus a bonus of$6K. making her after-rebate cost 0.25 x 10000 = 2500. So her net including the bonus is 29500-2500+6000 = \$33000.

Hope this helps.
