    Smile a net of...

    Dear Teachers,

    I am writing to ask the following question.

    He's the founder and owner of a major international company with "a net worth of over 20 million." What does "a net worth of over 20 million mean?"

    Thanks!

    Emily

    Net means after all deductions like tax, so it is his real worth, not an inflated figure.
