    Unhappy HELP! New To C++ and stuck

    Hello,

    I am new to c++ this year, i know this looks like nothing hard to you but i am stuck. Should i use bool or if and else? I have been working on this for a while it has me baffled.

    Thanks for your time,
    John

    Write a 'C++' program to calculate an employee's net pay based on the information given below. Save your program with the name: BUDGET.CPP



    INPUT
    The following information will be entered from the keyboard for each employee:

    Employee's name

    Base Pay

    Dollar amount of sales earned this month



    PROCESSING
    Calculations are to be done as follows:

    Commission = Total Sales less $200 * 6.5% (if Total Sales are less than $1,200.00)

    Commission = Total Sales less $150 * 7.25% (if Total Sales are $1,200.00 or more)

    Gross Pay = Base Pay + Commission

    Deductions:

    Health Insurance = $58 (if Gross Pay is $600 or more)

    Retirement Account = 9% of Base Pay and 17% of Commission

    Taxes = 24.5% of Gross Pay

    Net Pay = Gross Pay Deductions





    OUTPUT
    Output will be to the screen. Print title and headings as indicated below. Print the base pay, amount of sales, amount of commission, gross pay, all deductions, and net pay. Where nnn appears, you calculated answers should be displayed. Wherever nnn.nn appears, your answer should display two digits to the right of the decimal point. Note that all the values must be aligned vertically. Remember your program should work for any employee.



    Pseudocode for the assignment:

    1 Input the Employee's name, Base Pay, and Dollar amount of sales earned this month.



    2 Check the total sales for less than 1200

    a. if yes compute commission = Total Sales less $200 * 6.5%

    b. if no compute commission = Total Sales less $150 * 7.25%

    3 Compute Gross Pay

    4 Figure Deductions

    a. check Gross Pay for under 600

    1. if yes Health Insurance = 0

    2. if no Health Insurance = 58

    b. Figure Retirement Account = 9% of Base Pay and 17% of Commission

    c. Figure Taxes = 24.5% of Gross Pay

    5 Figure Net Pay = = Gross Pay Deductions

    6 Print Name of Employee Header to the screen

    7 Print employee information to the screen.





    Output Format:

    BUDGET REPORT FOR name of employee

    INCOME:

    Base Pay: nnn.nn

    Sales: nnnn.nn

    Commission: nnn.nn

    Gross: nnnn.nn

    Deductions:

    Insurance nnnn.nn

    Retirement nnnn.nn

    Taxes nnnn.nn

    Net: nnnn.nn

    I could not figure out how to get it to all come together at the end. thats why you see the ( heathi || h0 ) I was getting frustrated and trying anything lol. At the end i could not get it to total it all up with the retirement and take out the health insurance and all the other forks in the road. I got so frustrated i could not think straight,lol. what kind of code can include all those processes? Thats why i have so many ngp=new gross pay i had a ngp every time i took out a deduction. I felt like i was coming at this the wrong way.

    Thanks alot

    Salem,

    Thanks a ton for your help, I finally saw the light with your help. I think I was over analyseing the problem and not letting the program think a little. I have posted my final code below, tell me what you think.

    Again thanks for the help,
    John

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <iomanip.h>
    
    	//Named constants - residential customers
    const double healthi = -58.00;
    const double h0 = 0.00;
    
    
    
    
    int main()
    {
    		//Variable declaration
    	char empn[25];
    	double  basepay;
    	int  stm;
    	int commission ;
    	double gross_pay;
    	double heath_contribution;
    	double retirement;
    	double Net;
    	double taxes;
    //Inputs - Emp. Name, Base Pay and Sales This Month
    
    	cout<<fixed<<showpoint;							
    	cout<<setprecision(2);								
    
    	cout<<endl;

    	//Commission Processiong
    	
    	if ( stm < 1200 ) {
        commission = (stm-200) * 0.065;
    } else {
        commission = (stm-150) * 0.0725;
    }
    gross_pay = basepay + commission;
    
    
    
    //Deductions
    
    cout<<endl;
    if ( gross_pay < 600 ) {
        heath_contribution = h0;
    } else
     {
        heath_contribution = healthi;
    }
    
    retirement = basepay * 0.09 + commission * 0.17;
    taxes=gross_pay*.245;

    Use the newer headers. Replace this:
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <iomanip.h>
    ...with this...
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    using namespace std;
