If yes, write the MBR at (b) if no, copy (a) to (b) (b) \$464.20 3 Multiply (b) by 14% and copy (c) (c) \$64.99 4 Is the amount at (a) ? MBR? If yes, write \$0 to (d) If no, subtract the MBR from (a), and write the amount to (d) (d) \$162.90 5 Is the amount at (d) ? the income free area (IFA)? if yes, copy the IFA to (e) if no, copy (d) to (e) (e) \$120.00 6 Multiply (e) by 55% and write the amount at (f) (f) \$66.00 7 Is the amount at (d) ? IFA? If yes, write \$0 to (g) If no, subtract the IFA from (d), and write the amount to (g) (g) \$42.90 8 Multiply (g) by 27.5% and write the amount at (h) (h) \$11.80 9 Add up the amounts at (c), (f) and (h) to determine the formulated rate. \$142.79
