Best answer

1) 25 mills mean 25 per 100.
112,000 / 100 = 1,120 * 25 = 28,000

2) 16:1 ratio students to teacher. 2,000 students
2,000 / 16 = 125 teachers needed

3) & 4) I'm not sure of my answer.

5)
Gross income : 215
Fica tax: 15.16
income tax: 29.33
state tax: 2% of 215 = 4.30 
city tax : 1% of 215  = 2.15
retirement fund: 3% of 215 = 6.45
total deduction: 57.39

net income = 215 - 57.39 = 157.61
