1. Correct Answer: d. \$2,073.60

2. To calculate Tyrone’s total monthly cash inflow, we can follow these steps:

1. Calculate Tyrone’s gross weekly earnings:
• Hourly wage = \$18
• Hours worked per week = 40
• Gross weekly earnings = \$18 * 40 = \$720
2. Calculate Tyrone’s net weekly earnings:
• Net pay is 72% of his gross earnings.
• Net weekly earnings = 72% of \$720 = 0.72 * \$720 = \$518.40
3. Calculate Tyrone’s net monthly earnings (cash inflow):
• There are 4 pay periods in a month.
• Monthly cash inflow = \$518.40 * 4 = \$2,073.60

Therefore, the correct answer is:

d. \$2,073.60
