17% of \$50,000 is?

.17 x 50,000 =

I don't have a calculator near me but that's your equation.

Is this a trick question?

Is the 17% child support gross or net?

No, it's not a trick question, lol.

I have no idea.  My dd's husband left her recently.  We don't know the laws.  Do they look at gross or net?

THEY GO BY GROSS, BUT DO ALLOW SOME DEDUCTIONS (BASIC LIVING EXPENSES)

Oh, hee hee, hmmm, I don't know the laws either.  I'm not divorced so I don't know if it is gross or net.  Just thought I'd ask.  \$8500 could be high if based on net, ya know?
