    Hey, Guys I'm really having a tough time doing this Homework. I don't really know how to start. It would be much appreciated if someone can help.

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for newcomers.

    Why don't you know how to start? You can't open and run your source code editor? You can't create a Java class with a main() method? You can't follow the fairly explicit directions given by the assignment? We can't do these most basic things for you or otherwise start you, and we can't write the code for you. You have to make an effort, post code, and ask for specific help with that code. Beyond that, there's not much we can do.

    If you truly cannot do any of those most basic things I listed to start this project, then you should review your class notes and textbook, and/or ask your instructor, the TAs, or other students (as allowed by the class policy) for help.

    Good luck!

    No I mean I don't really know how to do this like what kind of commands do I need to use. Long story short I need someone to guide me.

    I saw a similar problem among some of the students in my programming class before. It can sometimes be difficult to get the ball rolling on a program without a real starting point. There is a process that may help.

    After reading the program, break the problem into several pieces and design individual solutions for them. My instructor liked starting with inputs and used them to determine programming in a step-by-step fashion. I personally start at end-product all of the time, as I find it is intuitive.

    For example, the program is asking for what type of inputs? How can I get these inputs?

    If that question seems to complex, it can also be broken down following the same approach. How could I get just a single input of salary?

    Let me know if this helps, because I personally don't have an issue in logical deconstruction and I am not sure if this really explains it rightly.
