Didn't read all yuor code, but you cant do an implicit multiply with brackets, eg a(b+c) in Java. In Java that looks like a call to method a with parameter value b+c. You have to use an explicit multiply operator, a*(b+c)

it always says.....

=gp(long,long) in payslip3 cannot be applied to (long)
=nt(long,long) in payslip3 cannot be applied to (long)
=td(long,long) in payslip3 cannot be applied to (long)

gp(long,long)

Where do you define a gp() method that takes 1 long as parameter? The compiler can not find it.

Please post the full text of the error message from the compiler. Do NOT edit them.

It's confusing to use the same name for a variable and for a method. The names should be different.

what does it mean when it says(long,long) cannot be applied to long?

It's saying that you have defined a method that takes two long values as its two parameters, but when you call that method you only supply one long value.

ps (a, b) is two values. (a+b) is an extpression that uses two values, but reduces them to a single value by adding them together

Edited 5 Years Ago by JamesCherrill: n/a

I changed it already but in line 309, it still shows the error: totaldeduction(int,int) in payslip3 cannot be applied to (int,int,int,int,int,int)

Exactly the same problem, except this time the method requires two ints and you have supplied six.
When you call a method the parameters you supply must exactly match the parameters the method is expecting, both in kind and in number
