The first question asks about the first line of the setup. Thus, Leo’s average tax is ($12,500 divided by $25,000) times 100, or 50 percent.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
