Find new salary: Sue is paid salary of ​\$440/week plus 7​% of all sales over \$5000.
Sue Tomlin is paid a salary of ​\$440 per week plus 7​% of all sales over​ \$5000. She is single and claims two withholding allowances each one at \$70.19 . Her deductions include​ FICA, Medicare, federal​ withholding, state disability​ insurance, state​ withholding, credit union savings of ​\$50​, a Salvation Army contribution of ​\$10​, and dues of ​\$15 to a professional sales association. Find her net pay for a week in April during which she has sales of ​\$12,938.00 with returns and allowances of ​\$417.58. Use the percentage method of​ withholding, a FICA rate of 6.2​%, a Medicare rate of 1.45​%, an SDI rate of 1​%, and a state withholding tax of 3.4​%.

I think I have to remove the allowances of 417.58 from the 12,938.00 = 12520.20 then multiply new number by the .07 = 876.4294 round up = 876.43 then add new number to the 440.00 =1316.43 then subtract 2 (70.19) = 140.38 which gives our new salary 1316.43 to compare to the next table
