a. How much taxes would you pay? Please show math and explanation
b. Now, what if you're NOT married but have those two dependents, and all the numbers are still the same (including health insurance), now how much would you pay in taxes?

Your mortgage loan on that house is \$400,000 with a 3.5 percent yearly interest. (The total value for the house is \$450,000, but you already paid the \$50,000 as a downpayment, and you're left with the \$400,000 loan.)
