    comparative tax problem

    Hey, I could not find the correct answers or how to properly do these questions!

    help please!!!!

    Two candidates for the coming city elections are proposing a 13% tax increase for the next tw years. However, each candidatehas a different proposal, as show:

    Candidate A: For the first year, taxes will go up 2% and in the second year, taxes will go up 11%.

    Candidate B: For the first year, taxes will go up 8% and in the second year, taxes will go up 5%.

    If you were to vote based solely on how much taxes you have to pay over the the next 2 years, which candidates should you vote for? Justify Your Answer.

    If your annual income were $10,000 per year how much tax would you pay under each scheme?
