Net bring home pay is $429 after 22% deductions. how much was the gross pay?

Jul 4th, 2014

let the initial gross pay be 'X'

the deduction is 22% of the total, so the deduction is (22/100) * X

so, (initial gross pay) - (deduction) = $429

therefore, X - 0.22X = $429

0.78X = $429

X = $429/0.78 = $550
