The state income tax where Kristin lives is levied at the rate of p% of the first $28000 of annual income plus (p+2)% of any amount above $28000. Kristin noticed that the state income tax she paid amounted to (p+0.25)% of her annual income. What was her annual income?

Let 'x' be her income

 

tax will be    p ( 28000) + (p+2)(x-28000)  = (p+.25) x

                     28000p + px-28000p +2x -56000 = px + .25x

                            2x-56000  = .25x

                            -56000 = -1.75x      x =$ 32000
