hi everyone

system.out.println("thank you all for the birthday greeting!!!!!!!!! much appreciated.)

hi james
it has been quite a while. sorry that I had upset u the last time I was here.

I am trying to build a payroll system for a community college in java. and the calculation is off. been busting my head to get it right. try it all how, turn it around, erase it, redo it over and still getting the same result.
so I would like to know when did my calculation went off. here is the program codes that i used;

 double gpay = 0, netpay = 0, tax, hrs, fixedsal = 0, incometax = 0, totdeduct = 0, deduction = 0, healthsurcharge =0;
        int numhrs,  payrate = 0;

        System.out.println("please enter the lecturer id");
        String userid = readin.next();

        System.out.println("please enter your first name");
        String userfirstname = readin.next();

        System.out.println("please enter your last name");
        String userlastname = readin.next();

        System.out.println("how many hours you have worked");
        double hrswrk = readin.nextDouble();

        System.out.println("what is your teaching allowance");
        double teachallow = readin.nextDouble();

        System.out.println("how much is your NIS");
        double nis = readin.nextDouble();

        hrs = (hrswrk * payrate);
        deduction = (fixedsal * 3/100);
        tax =(gpay * incometax) + 33.50 + nis;
        totdeduct = (gpay - netpay);

        System.out.println("the lecturer id number is " + userid);
        System.out.println("the lecturer name is " + userfirstname +  userlastname);
        System.out.println("the hours worked are " + hrswrk);
        System.out.println("the gross pay is" +  gpay);
        System.out.println("the income tax is " + incometax);
        System.out.println("total deduction is " + totdeduct);
        System.out.println("the netpay is " + netpay);

here is the output
please enter the lecturer id
please enter your first name
please enter your last name
how many hours you have worked
what is your teaching allowance
how much is your NIS
the lecturer id number is P4587S
the lecturer name is petersmalls
the hours worked are 50.0
the gross pay is0.0
the income tax is 0.0
total deduction is 0.0
the netpay is 0.0

Hi - you didn't upset me, so don't worry.

I can't see any code there that calculates a value for gpay, so its value remains at 0. Similarly for netpay and payrate


I'm fine. The sun is shining, my wife just bought me a wonderful new guitar, and I'm watching the men's final at Wimbledon. I'm not mad at anybody.
