Q1:

a.) If 46% of 1,860,000 is spent per month for fire and police protection, that is equivalent to 0.46*1,860,000 = \$855,600

b.) If \$855,600 is the amount spent per month, in 1 year that amount would be multiplied by 12 since we have 12 months in a year;

= 855,600 * 12 = \$10,267,200

Q2:

a.)

Total employed workers = 90,000

Public employees = 18,000

Percentage of public employees = (18,000 / 90,000) * 100% = 20%

b.)

Public employees = 18,000

Out of the 18,000, number employed by Federal government = 6,000

Therefore, percentage of public employees, employed by Federal government is; (6,000 / 18,000) * 100% = 33.33%
