#================================================================== # Program: Homework 3 # Programmer: # Date: January 26, 2018 # Abstract: This program uses functions to calculate pay, commission, gross pay, withholding, and net pay. #================================================================== def main(): hourly_pay_rate=7.50 commission_rate=0.05 withholding_rate=0.25 def display_message(): print("This program calculates the salesperson's pay.") print("Five values are displayed:") print("hourly pay, commission, gross pay, withholding, and net pay.") print("") #Get name employee_name = input("Enter Employee's Name: ") #Get Sales sales_amount = float(input("Enter the Sales Amount: ")) #Get Hours hours_worked = int(input("Enter Hours Worked by this Employee: ")) #Calculate Hourly Pay hourly_pay = hours_worked * hourly_pay_rate #Calculate Commission commission = sales_amount * commission_rate #Calculate Gross Pay gross_pay = hourly_pay_rate + commission #Calculate Withholding withholding = gross_pay * withholding_rate #Calculate Net Pay net_pay = gross_pay - withholding_rate display_results("hourly_pay, commission, gross_pay, withholding, net_pay") def display_results(hourly_pay, commission, gross_pay, withholding, net_pay): print ("The hourly pay amount is: %.2f" % hourly_pay_rate) print ("The commission amount is: %.2f" % commission_rate) print ("The gross pay amount is: %.2f" % gross_pay) print ("The withholding amount is: %.2f" % withholding_rate) print ("The net pay amount is: %.2f" % net_pay) #define global constants and call main hourly_pay_rate = float (7.50) commission_rate = float (0.05) withholding_rate = float (0.25) #call the main function main()
from your main function, you never call the other functions, if i run your code here:
it throws some errors. Also, keep in mind that
hourly_pay_rate defined in main function has a local scope, so you can’t access in
display_message, what you attempt here:
hourly_pay = hours_worked * hourly_pay_rate
hourly_pay_rate is undefined because of scope
