abozer :

Hi,

abozer :

Benefits are %12 of the base salary,

abozer :

Benefits = 0.12*Base salary

abozer :

Total compensation is the summation of the base salary and benefits,

abozer :

36,000 = Base salary + 0.12*Base salary

abozer :

36,000 = 1.12*Base salary

abozer :

Divide each side by 1.12,

abozer :

36,000 / 1.12 = 1.12*Base salary / 1.12

abozer :

32,142.86 = Base salary

abozer :

Let me know if you have any questions.
