**Note: **This question is not complete. The complete question is therefore provided before answering the question. **See the attached pdf for the complete question**.

**Explanation of the answers is now provided as follows:**

**a. What percentage of income is spent on lottery tickets by a low-income family with an income of $20,000 per year.**

From the attached question, we have:

Amount spent by households with less than $25,000 of income a year on lottery tickets = $1,100

Therefore, we have:

Percentage spent by family with $20,000 income per year on lottery tickets = (Amount spent by households with less than $25,000 of income a year on lottery tickets / $20,000) = ($1,100 / $20,000) * 100 = 5.50%

Therefore, the percentage of income spent on lottery tickets by a low-income family with an income of $20,000 per year is **5.50%.**

**b. What percentage of income is spent on lottery tickets by a middle-income family with an income of $60,000 per year.**

From the attached question, we have:

Amount spent by households with more than $50,000 of income a year on lottery tickets = $300

Therefore, we have:

Percentage spent by family with $60,000 income per year on lottery tickets = (Amount spent by households with more than $50,000 of income a year on lottery tickets / $60,000) * 100 = ($300 / $60,000) * 100 = 0.50%

Therefore, the percentage of income spent on lottery tickets by a middle-income family with an income of $60,000 per year is **0.50%**.
