Example 1 Ron is single. He is using an IRS tax form and calculates that his taxable income is \$51,482. The instructions tell him to use the tax table to determine his taxes. How much does Ron owe in taxes?

If r represents Ron’s taxable income, express his tax interval as an inequality using both interval notation and compound inequality notation.

Example 2 Maria and Don are married taxpayers filing a joint return. Their combined taxable income is \$153,900. The IRS offers a tax schedule so that taxpayers can calculate their tax. Use the tax schedule below for married taxpayers filing jointly to calculate Maria and Don’s tax.

Using the table, what taxable income would yield a tax of exactly \$8,962.50?

Example 3 The IRS includes the tax schedule for information purposes only. For taxable incomes over \$100,000, taxpayers must use the tax worksheet. Here is a portion of the worksheet for married taxpayers filing jointly. Calculate Maria and Don’s tax using this worksheet.
