Homework Help: Programming

Posted by Lee on Sunday, October 31, 2010 at 3:03am.

This is a problem with mathmatics. the Question is: Federal law requires hourly employees be paid "time-and-a-half" for work in excess of 40 hours in a week. For example, if a person's hourly wage is $8 and he works 60 hours in a week, his gross pay should be
(40 * 8) + (1.5 * 8 * (60-40)) = $560

below is my formula:
egularwages = hoursworked * wages
grosspay = hoursworked * wages + (1.5 * wages * (hoursworked - hoursworked))
If wages <= 40 Then
txtGrossPay.Text = (regularwages * hoursworked)
ElseIf wages >= 40 Then
txtGrossPay.Text = (regularwages * hoursworked + (1.5 * wages * (wages - regularwages)))
End If
Please help by telling me what I have wrong? Thanks..
