Answer: Option D.$850.64; $91.14 Step-by-step explanation: Joyce Meadow pays her three workers per week$160, $470 and$800 respectively.

A year has 52 weeks, Therefore quarter has = 13 weeks.

So for a quarter she pays = 160 × 13 = $2,080, 470 × 13 =$6,110, 800 × 13 = $10,400 State rate is 5.6% Federal rate is 0.6% Base is$7,000

It means the unemployment needs to be paid on the first $7000 only So the state unemployment = (0.056 × 2,080) + (0.056 × 6,110) + (0.056 × 7,000) = 116.48 + 342.16 + 392 =$850.64

Federal unemployment = (0.006 × 2,080) + (0.006 × 6,110) + (0.006 × 7,000)

= 12.48 + 36.66 + 42 = \$91.14

Option D. is the correct answer.
