    with four incomes

    Hello everyone.
    I'd like to ask about the meaning of the phrase "four incomes". The situation is as follows: the reporter sees that in the city she has been sent to make a story people used old-fashioned equipment and she says to the mayor's aide about this.

    "Isn't that a little insecure?" Annabellla asked.
    "It's what we could get," Terise said as she climbed into the driver's seat. "Anything new enough to have bioscans is way out of our price range, even with four incomes."
    "Your family?" Annabella asked as she folded herself into the front seat. The truck had had much more room.
    Terise nodded and pushed the button to start the car up.

    Does the phrase "with four incomes" mean the Terises's income plus the incomes of three other members of Terises's family?

    Re: with four incomes

    Yes. It means four sources of income in the family. The father might have two jobs, the mother one, and one of the kids another. Or any combination thereof.
