# Homework Help: Logic and Design

Posted by Harvey on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 8:01pm.

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
