Week 3 Activity – Calculate Overtime Pay

-------------------------------------------------
TCO #4 – Given a simple business problem that requires one or more decisions, create a solution algorithm that uses decisions with logical and relational expressions.

-------------------------------------------------
TCO #9 – Given a program with logic errors that is intended as a solution to a simple business problem, employ debugging diagnostics to remove and correct the errors.

Assignment:
You will need to design an application that it will prompt a user for their hourly pay rate, their hours worked, and whether they are single, married, divorced, or widowed. It will then calculate their gross and net pay. If they work more than 40 hours, overtime is calculated at 1 ½ times the regular rate and displayed separately. If they are married, use a flat tax rate of 15%. If they are single, use 22%, if they are divorced, use 23%, and if they are widowed, use 13% (I realize that these are not very realistic). Here is a sample of what the program should do when run:

(No overtime example)
Enter hourly pay rate:
10.00
Enter hours worked:
35
Enter letter for (M)arried, (S)ingle, (D)ivorced, (W)idowed: M
Gross pay is \$350.00
Net pay is \$297.50

(Overtime example)
Enter hourly pay rate:
10.00
Enter hours worked:
45
Enter letter for (M)arried, (S)ingle, (D)ivorced, (W)idowed: S
Regular pay is \$400.00
Overtime pay is \$75.00
Gross pay is \$475.00
Net pay is \$370.50
