Answer:Hi there!

An equation to represent how he got $460.65 as take home pay is:

15x – (.17× (15x) ) = 460.65

15x tells us how much money he earned in total. We also multiply that by .17 to determine how much goes to taxes. Then, we subtract taxes from total, and put that equal to our take home pay
