here's the overview:

use a one dimensional array to solve the following problem: a company pays its salespeople on a commission basis. the sales people receive $200/week, plus 9% of their gross sales for that week. for example, a salesperson who grosses $5,000 in sales in a week receives $200 plus 9% of $5,000, a total of $650. write an application (using an array of counters) that determines how many of the salespeople earned salaries in each of the following ranges (assuming that each salesperson's salary is truncated to an integer amount): $200-299, $300-399, $400-499, $500-599, $600-699, $700-799, $800-899, $900-999 and over $999.

Allow the user to enter the sales for each employee in a TextBox. The user clicks the Calculate Button to calculate the person's salary. when the user is done entering this information, clicking the Show Totals Button displays how many of the salespeople earned salaries in each of the above ranges.

The finished applications should behave like the one on the attachment below.

I know i sound like a complete noob...but i am to VB 2008/studio. any help would be greatly appreciated. i'm sure it would only take someone that actually knew this program 5-10 minutes to do...i just need help badly. i'm not even sure where to start on this, or i would post code. any links even to something i could read that might help me translate this easier would also be appreciated. thank you!
