Hi, I am new to writing code and am doing a programming assignment for a class that has to be separated into different functions. I figured most of it out, but can't seem to get the validation part to work at all. could someone with more experience than me please check the get_info function and tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks for your help.
def main(): hours, rate = get_info() base, over = calc_hours(hours) pay1, pay2, total = calc_pay(rate, base, over) print() print(' Payroll Information') print('Pay Rate $', format(rate, ',.2f'), sep='') print('Regular Hours ', format(base, ',.2f')) print('Overtime Hours ', format(over, ',.2f')) print('Regular Pay $', format(pay1, ',.2f'), sep='') print('Overtime Pay $', format(pay2, ',.2f'), sep='') print('Total Pay $', format(total, ',.2f'), sep='') def get_info(): hours = 0 rate = 0 hours = float(input('Enter total hours worked: ')) while hours < 8 and hours > 86: print('ERROR!!! --- Hours must be between 8 and 86') hours = float(input('Enter again: ')) rate = float(input('Enter payrate: $')) while rate < 7.00 and rate > 50.00: print('ERROR!!! --- Rate must be between $7.00 and $50.00') rate = float(input('Enter again: ')) return hours, rate def calc_hours(hours): base = 40 over = 0 if hours > 40: over = hours - base else: base = hours return base, over def calc_pay(rate, base, over): pay1 = 0 pay2 = 0 pay1 = base * rate pay2 = over * (rate * 1.5) total = pay1 + pay2 return pay1, pay2, total main()
