WRITE A simple program will calculate the gross and net pay for

an employee, John Smith, who has worked 45½ hours this

week. He receives $12.00 an hour for the first 40 hours, and

time-and-a-half for each additional hour as his gross pay.

His withholdings total 28.5% of his gross pay, meaning that

his net take-home pay is 71.5% of his gross pay.

The screen must display the employee’s name, total hours

worked, regular pay rate, total hours at regular pay rate, pay

rate at overtime, total hours at overtime, total gross pay,

withholdings, and net pay.

You really don't need a loop for this program at all, just some arithmetic.

Multiply the first two variables, and you get how much he made at 40 hours, then add the second two variables and you see how much he made at 45.5 hours.

Since John only gets to take home 71.5% of his gross pay though, we have to multiply his gross pay by that rate to get his net take-home pay. So...

Hope I could help, if you don't understand anything, please ask to me explain,as it's the concepts that are important, not the actual answer you get.

double hourlyWage = 12.00 //that's how much John makes an hour under working up to 40 hours double overtimeWage = 18.00 //that's how much he works when he goes over 40 hours double timeOnHourly = 40 //since John worked 45.5 hours, he only gets 40 hours on hourly wage double timeOnOvertime = 5.5 // the extra 5.5 hours gets overtime wage double grossPay = timeOnHourly*hourlyWage + timeOnOvertime*overtimeWage

Multiply the first two variables, and you get how much he made at 40 hours, then add the second two variables and you see how much he made at 45.5 hours.

Since John only gets to take home 71.5% of his gross pay though, we have to multiply his gross pay by that rate to get his net take-home pay. So...

double takeHomePay = grossPay*.715
