    A.$ 13,500

    B. 45%

    C. 18%

    Explanation:

    a)

    Tax on $ 50,000 = 0 + 0.15 x ($ 20,000 - $ 10,000) + 0.30 x ($ 30,000 - $ 20,000) + 0.45 x ($ 50,000 - $ 30,000)

    Tax payable = 0 + $ 1,500 + $ 3,000 + $ 9,000

    Tax payable = $ 13,500

    b) The marginal tax rate can be seen as the extra taxes which is been paid on an additional dollar of income

    The marginal tax rate = 45%

    c)

    Average tax rate = Total taxes paid / div Total income

    Average tax rate = $ 9,000 / $50,000

    =0.18*100

    Average tax rate = 18%
