# 90 Federal taxes. According to Bruce Harrell, CPA, the federal income tax for a class C corporation is found by solving a linear equation. The reason for the equation is that the amount x of federal tax is deducted before the state tax is figured. And the amount of state tax is deducted before the federal tax is figured. To find the amount of federal tax for a corporation with a taxable income of \$ 200,000, for which the federal tax rate is 25% and state tax is 10%, Bruce must solve

X = 0.25[200,000 - 0.10(200,000 - x].

Solve the equation for Bruce.

Complete these Assignments Problems:

#23. 2=x+7
-7 from both sides
x= -5

#24
3=x+5
-5 from both sides
x= -2

#48
2/3 x = -8
divide both sides by 2/3 (which is really multiplying by 3/2)
x = -8 (3/2)
x= -24/2
x= -12

#49. 90 = 3y/4
multiply both sides by 4
360=3y
divide both sides by 3
y=120

# 92. World gain demand. Freeport McMoRan projects that in 2010 word gain supply will be 1, 8 trillion metric tons and the supply will be only ¾ of world gain demand. What will world gain demand be in 2010?
3/4 (1,800,000,000)
or .75 * 1,800,000,000
= 1,350,000,000 metric tons world gain demand in 2010

#7. -3y - (-6) = 0
minus a negative is really +
-3y+6=0
subtract 6 from both sides
-3y = -6
divide both sides by -3
y=2

#8. -9w - 54 = 0
add 54 to both ...
