I do not know because I do not know what my income is.

I had the same thought, Melody, but there was this other time when I pointed out the possibility that a question might be a trick question and I got ridiculed for it.  So this time, I'm just assuming it was a typo.  :-)

Maybe, but I think it is a trick question.

Maybe you should/could ignore people when they ridicule you.?

You're right, of course, but it was unsettling nonetheless.  Anyway, just to be careful, I didn't commit to an "answer" answer.  All I did was say what a certain fraction reduces to.
