Persons who are paid a fixed amount each month for their services during that period are said to receive a salary. This amount is called a gross salary. After deductions, such as taxes, the amount the worker receives is referred to as a net salary.

Example 1

A teacher is paid an annual salary of $33 360. What is his gross monthly salary?

Example 2

The gross monthly salary of an economist is $6 875. Calculate his net annual salary after deductions of $985 were made monthly.
