Answer:

The amount that goes into his pension monthly is #$198.00#.

Explanation:

In order to determine how much the pension is per month, multiply his monthly salary by #6%# as a decimal.

Convert #6%# into a decimal.

#6%=6/100=0.06#

Multiply the captain's monthly salary by #0.06#. The result will be the amount of his pension.

#$3300.00xx0.06=$198.00#
