Calculate Gross Salary From Net Salary
Date: 27 Apr 1995 22:03:32 -0400 From: Manfred Jung Subject: (none) Hi there Dr Math. I would appreciate some help with a formula if anyone be so kind. This is what it must do: It must calculate the Gross Salary from the net salary. Normally, this is done the other way round, starting with the Gross arriving at the tax and net salary: Gross * Rate - Rebate = Tax + Net 15000 * 0.19 - 2625 = 225 + 14775 How would the formula look if you have this? Gross * Rate - Rebate = Tax + Net x * 0.19 - 2625 = y + 14775 How could you calculate x and y? Contact me please via internet <email@example.com> Thanks in advance Manfred

If you have the equation x * 0.19 - 2625 = y + 14775, the best you can do is solve for x in terms of y: first add 2625 to both sides to get x * 0.19 = y + 17400, and then divide both sides by 0.19: x = 5.26 * y + 91579. You'll never be able to determine specific values of x and y without more information. Is there any relationship between the Gross Salary and the Tax that you haven't mentioned? If there is, then we'll be able to solve the problem. Without any more information, the problem can't be taken any further. -K
