Problem Set 3 1. Louise McIntyre’s monthly gross income is $2,000. Her employer withholds $400 in federal, state, and local income taxes and $160 in Social Security taxes per month. Louise contributes $80 per month for her IRA. Her monthly credit payments for VISA, MasterCard, and Discover card are $35, $30, and $20, respectively. Her monthly payment on an automobile loan is $285. What is Louise’s debt payments-to-income ratio? Is Louise living within her means? Debt Payments-to-Income Ratio = Monthly Credit Payments /Net Monthly Income ANS. $2000 – (400+160+80) = $1360 $1360 – (35+30+20+285) = $370 Debt Payments-to-Income Ratio = 370/1360 = 0.272 = 27.2% At 27% Louise is spending 7% over the recommended 20% of net income that she should be spending on credit payments, so she IS NOT living within her means. 2.

What is your debt payments – to – income ratio?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
