Hi there, been having some trouble with a simple program i am trying to write. I'm fairly new to C++, and can't seem to fix the errors im getting. Any ideas or hints would be much appreciated.

#include <iostream>

using namespace std; 

int main()
{
     double payrate;
		 double hours;
		 double overtimehours;
		 double overtimepay;
		 double totalpay;

    cout << "How many hours did client work this week?" << endl ;
	cin >> hours ;
	cout << "What is their current payrate?" << endl ;
	cin >> payrate ;

	if (payrate < 10) && (hours > 40)
    overtimehours = hours - 40 ;
	overtimepay = overtimehours * 1.5 * payrate ;
	totalpay = 40 * payrate + overtimepay ;
	cout << "The client worked overtime, they are owed: $" << totalpay << endl ;
	else  
    totalpay = hours * payrate ;
    cout << "The client is owed: $" << totalpay << endl ;
	 
	return 0 ;  

}

These are the errors im getting;

c:\documents and settings\owner\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\practice\practice\payrate.cpp(18) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '&&'

c:\documents and settings\owner\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\practice\practice\payrate.cpp(18) : warning C4390: ';' : empty controlled statement found; is this the intent?

c:\documents and settings\owner\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\practice\practice\payrate.cpp(23) : error C2181: illegal else without matching if

Again, any hints in the right direction here are much appreciated.

You messed up your if statement and forgot the braces on the if and else statements, heres the fixed code, good luck.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std; 

int main()
{
double payrate;
double hours;
double overtimehours;
double overtimepay;
double totalpay;

cout << "How many hours did client work this week?" << endl ;
cin >> hours ;
cout << "What is their current payrate?" << endl ;
cin >> payrate ;

if (payrate < 10 && hours > 40)
{
overtimehours = hours - 40 ;
overtimepay = overtimehours * 1.5 * payrate ;
totalpay = 40 * payrate + overtimepay ;
cout << "The client worked overtime, they are owed: $" << totalpay << endl ;
}

else 
{ 
totalpay = hours * payrate ;
cout << "The client is owed: $" << totalpay << endl ;
}
	 
return 0 ;  

}

Should be..

if(payrate < 10 && hours > 40)
{ // begin if
   //-- your code here
} // end if
else
   //...Else

wow, that was a pretty simple fix. I wasnt sure if i needed to include the brackets after the "if" statement, that does help alot. Thanks again guys, really cleared that up for me.
