Homework Answers

Answer #1

1. Calculation of Sam's gross pay:

- Regular Pay: [$15 * 40 hours] = $600

- Overtime excluding holidays: [$15 * 1.5 * 14 hours] = $315

- Holiday Pay: [$15 * 2 * 8 hours] = $210

Gross Pay = [$600 + $315 + $210] = $1,125

2. Sam's Social Security [6.2%] and Medicare tax [1.45%] amounts to:

- Gross Pay * 7.65%

- $1,125 * 7.65%

= $86

3. Net Paycheck: Amount left after deduction of social security, medicare tax, federal income tax, other dues.

- [$1,125 - $86 - $155 - $7 - $15.6]

Net Paycheck = $861.4
