3. Computing Group Insurance Deductions • Find the percent paid by Emily: 100% - 65% = 35% • Find the annual amount paid by Emily: \$2,500 X 35% = \$2,500 X .35 = \$875 • Find the deduction per pay period: \$875 26 = \$33.65 deduction per pay period

7. Let’s Practice… • Find the percent paid by Jack: 100% - 70% = 30% • Find the annual amount paid by Jack: \$3,975 X 30% = \$3,975 X .30 = \$1192.50 • Find the deduction per pay period: \$1192.50 26 = \$45.87 deduction per pay period

8. One More Time… Melissa earns \$1,970 per month. Her family insurance plan costs \$4,450 per year. Her employer pays 66% of the cost. If this is her only deduction, how much is her monthly paycheck after the medical insurance deduction?

9. One More Time… • Find the percent paid by Melissa: 100% - 66% = 34% • Find the annual amount paid by Melissa: \$4,450 X 34% = \$4,450 X .34 = \$405.45 • Find the deduction per pay period: \$405.45 12 = \$33.79 deduction per pay period Find the monthly paycheck after the insurance deduction : \$1,970 - \$33.79 = \$1936.21

10. One More Time… • Find the percent paid by Melissa: 100% - 66% = 34% • Find the annual amount paid by Melissa: \$4,450 X 34% = \$4,450 X .34 = \$1513.00 • Find the deduction per pay period: \$1513.00 12 = \$126.08 per pay period Find the monthly paycheck after the insurance deduction : \$1,970 - \$126.08 = \$1843.92
