This windows application finds the amount of your pay if your pay is doubled each day, starting with a penny a day or a nickel a day. Instead of one month's salary, a boss offers her new employees a penny the first day and experienced employees a nickel the first day under a new pay system. Each day the pay will double.
Restriction: The minimum number of days for the pay period is 19 days for the new employees and 16 days for the experienced. The maximum number of days in a pay period is 22 days.
I have everything working except the double your pay each day part.This is what I have so far......
