20\$ = 2000 cents
2000 * 1.45 /100 = 29

Solution

Given:
• Alicia earns 20 dollars per hour, of which 1.45% is deducted to pay local taxes.

To find:
• Amount (cents) per hour of Alicia’s wages that are used to pay local taxes.

Approach and Working:
20 dollars = 20 x 100 cents = 2000 cents
• Amount of taxes paid = 1.45% of 2000 = 1.45/100 x 2000 = 1.45 x 20 = 29 cents

Hence, the correct answer is option E.
