  1. Calculate the tax charged on Omari’s monthly earnings. 
    Tax on 1st ksh 9680 = 9680 x 10/100 = kshs. 968
    Tax on 2nd kshs. 9120 = 9120 x 15/100= kshs 1368
    Tax on rem kshs. 5400 = 5400 x 20/100= ksh 1080
    Total tax = 968 + 1368 + 1080 = kshs. 3416
  2. Omari is entitled to the following tax relief of 15% of the premium paid.
    Calculate the tax Omari pays each month if he pays a monthly insurance premium of Ksh. 2400 
    Tax paid= 3416-(1056 + 2400 x 15/100)
    = kshs. 2000
  3. During a certain month, Omari received additional earnings which were taxed at 20% each shilling. Given that he paid 36.3% more tax that month, calculate the percentage increase in his earning. 
    Increase in tax paid = 2000 x 36.3= kshs. 726
    Increase in earnings= kshs. 726 x 100/20= ksh. 3630
    % increase = 3630 x 100
                             24200
