    Challenge 1

    Write a program that reads in the name, hourly rate and number of hours worked for 5 people. Print the name of each person, the number of hours worked, their weekly pay based on the number of hours they worked and how much they owe in taxes. Assume that taxes take 20% of the paycheck. Donít forget to take the taxes out of the pay check. If they work more than 40 hours they get overtime. The hourly rate is then 1.5 times normal for all hours past 40.

    Example (Sample input & output for one person)
    Enter name: Glenn
    Enter hourly rate: 4.00
    Enter hours worked: 75

    Pay to: Glenn
    Hourly rate: 4.00
    Hours worked: 75.0
    Amount paid: $370.00
    Taxes paid: $74.00

    And this is? We wont write your entire code for you. Start and come back when you run into a specific problem. If you need help with how to start, well there are tutorials on the web (C - Your Resource for C and C++ Programming) for instance.

    Will you stop posting a hundred threads for the same thing already???
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
