This is a bit of homework I have to do for my C++ class. I was suppose to add 11 as the pay code and 23 as the pay rate, but during the debug test when I type in 11 it doesn't display $23 like it's suppose to. What am I doing wrong here?

//Purpose: Displays the pay rate corresponding to the pay code entered by the user
//Input: The pay code
//Output: The pay rate

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
    {
    //declare array and variables
    int codesAndRates[5][2] = {{3, 8}, {7, 10}, {6, 14}, {9, 20}, {11, 23}};
    int payCode         = 0;
    int rowSubscript    = 0;

    //get pay code
    cout << "Pay code (3, 7, 6, 9, or 11). " << endl;
    cout << "Enter a negative number to end: ";
    cin >> payCode;

    while (payCode >= 0)
        {
        //search each row in the array, looking for the pay code in the first column
        //continue the search while there are array elements to search and the pay code has not been found
        rowSubscript = 0;
        while (rowSubscript <= 3 && codesAndRates[rowSubscript][0]!= payCode)
            rowSubscript += 1;
        //end while

        //if the pay code was found, display the pay rate located in the same row but in the second column in the array
        if (rowSubscript <= 3)
            cout << "Pay rate for pay code " << codesAndRates[rowSubscript][0] << ": $" << codesAndRates[rowSubscript][1] << endl;
        //end if

        //get pay code
        cout << "Pay code (3, 7, 6, 9, or 11). " << endl;
        cout << "Enter a negative number to end: ";
        cin >> payCode;
        } //end while

    system("pause");
    return 0;
    } //end of main function

Edited 3 Years Ago by dustin.mcalister.58: I don't know if the problem is in the array or not.
