## A maths question

I'm bad a maths even basic maths so please laugh and then help me lol if a childcare centre said it would cost \$213 a week after 50% ccb and 50% ccr what is the weekly cost before the ccb and ccr are taken off

2. I think that's unknown, you'd need to start from the full amount and work back, or at least have one other figure? Happy to be corrected ...

I don't think you can work it out. Because the way I understand the percentage to be is 50% of amount childcare centre charges over the amount Centrelink says it should be.

Eg
Childcare is \$80/day
Centrelink says childcare should only be \$50/day
The difference is \$30 so therefore your entitlement (50%) is \$15.

\$80-\$15= \$65 out of pocket. Then i have no idea how to do ccr.

Happy to be corrected as we are about to start childcare the next few months and this is how Centrelink explained my entitlement.

Addit: Or maybe it is you only get 50% of \$50 what they say it should be. Omg I am so confused

I don't think 50% ccb means 50% discount but could be wrong?

My workings. Take the final amount and times by 2 for ccr.

Then either add 15% or leave it the same. For the 2 different amounts

Then devide by 5 for days per week

Then divide by 12 for hours of care opened.

Take 4.35 and divide by 2. Take this from the divided by 12 amount.

Times by 12

Times by 5
