# You work at the peacock blue store 40 hours/week over five days at a rate of \$10.25/hour. Deductions are fica (7.65%), federal withholding (15%), and state withholding (10%). Your expenses are transportation at \$5.25/day, lunch at \$3.85/day, and black slacks required for work at \$19.95. How much is your discretionary income for one week?

Weekly salary =

Deductions are as follows:

FICA = 7.65% , amount becomes

Federal withholding =

State withholding =

Hence, total deductions are =

Daily transportation and lunch costs per day

Weekly expense for food and transportation =

Cost of black slacks = \$19.95

So, total expenses including deductions are =

Now, the weekly discretionary income is = = \$210.685 ≈ \$210.69

A right cone with a radius of 4 inches and a square pyramid both have a slant height of 5 inches. Both solids have the same surface area. Find the length of a base edge of the pyramid. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

The surface area of the cone is given by:
SA=πrl
Thus the surface area of the cone will be:
SA=π×4×5
SA=20π=63.932

Surface area of the pyramid is given by:
SA=1/2×4×(b×l)
thus the base length will be:
63.932=10l
thus
l=6.3932 in

Melissa needs to memorize words on a vocabulary list for Russian class. She has memorized 30 of the words, which is five-sixths of the list. How many words are on the list?

We know that 30 is 5/6 of the list. So we can find out how many words are on the list with the following equation:

Solve for x by isolating it. First we multiply both sides by 6 to cancel out the one-sixth.

Next divide both sides by 5 to cancel out the 5 being multiplied to the x.

The list has 36 words

Explanation:
Assume that the number of words on the list is x.
We are given that:
5/6 of the number of words on the list is equal to 30 words.
This means that:
(5/6)*x = 30
Solve for x as follows:
(5/6)*x = 30

5x = 6*30
5x = 180
x = 180/5
x = 36
