Hey guys I'm new to this forum and I'd like to find out if someone out there can make the code I've written for this homework assignment more eloquent. I somehow feel that the code is just really poorly written and my main goal is to reduce the number of lines of code I have written while still providing the same functionality.

*THIS IS A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT*

The assignment states the following:

Write a C program to calculate salary raise for employees.

If salary is between 0 < 30000 rate is 7.0%

If salary is between 30000 <= 40000 the rate is 5.5%

If salary is greater than 40000 the rate is 4.0%

1. you are to use appropriate functions and pass parameters for this program. Please include at least one function that uses the return statement and at least one function that does not use the return statement.

2. Draw a structure chart that shows all the functions.

3. Write a function to allow user to inpu the salaries only.

4. Write a function to calculate the raises, the new salaries(raise+salary), total of the original salaries, the total of raises and the total of all the new salaries with the raises.

5. Write a function to print the output as a table with 10 rows and 5 columns. Column names are Total, Salary, Rate%, Raise, New Salary.

6. you may have more than the 3 functions mentioned in item 3, 4, 5.

7. DO NOT USE LOOPS.
