    1.XYZ Company gives year-end bonuses to its employees based on their number of years of service and their salary using the following: Years of service=1 bonus=10% of salary; years of service=2 to 5 bonus=20% of salary; years of service=6 to 10 bonus=50% of salary; years of service= 11 and above bonus=75%

    2.write a program that asks the user for the hours worked for the week and the hourly rate. The basic salary is computed as Salary=hours worked X hourly rate.... Bonuses are given: No. of hours >45 bonus=500 pesos; No. of hours> 40 and <=45 bonus=250 pesos; No. of hours>35 and <=40 bonus=150...

    Post your answer and ask a specific question - and elaborate as to why you are not satisfied. That's a better learning exercise than asking for 'other' answers, which I'm sorry to say you won't get

    Default Hi people , here's my code to the problem but my prof said there is another way to solve this , can you help me thanks , i provided my answer below

    1.XYZ Company gives year-end bonuses to its employees based on their number of years of service and their salary using the following: Years of service=1 bonus=10% of salary; years of service=2 to 5 bonus=20% of salary; years of service=6 to 10 bonus=50% of salary; years of service= 11 and above bonus=75%


    package yearendbonus;

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class YearEndBonus
    {

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    Scanner sc = new Scanner (System.in);

    System.out.println("Years in service: ");
    double years = sc.nextDouble();
    System.out.println("Salary: ");
    double salary = sc.nextDouble();

    if(years == 1){
    System.out.println("Bonus = "+ (salary*.10));
    }
    else if((years >=2)&&(years<=5)){
    System.out.println("Bonus = "+ (salary*.20));
    }
    else if((years >=6)&&(years<=10)){
    System.out.println("Bonus = "+ (salary*.50));
    }
    else if(years >=11){

    I have merged your new thread with your old. Please read the link posted by Greg in his post above for forum guidelines, including how to properly format code. I would also recommend as I mentioned in my post above asking a question, or explaining what is wrong as clearly as possible.

    Hi,

    I format your code like this,

    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class YearEndBonus  {
     
    	private double years;
    	private double salary;
    	public double bonus;
    	public YearEndBonus (double years,double salary)
    	{
    		this.years=years;
    		this.salary=salary;
     
    	}
    	public double busLogic()
    	{
    		if(years == 1){
    			bonus=salary*.10;
    			}
    			else if((years >=2)&&(years<=5)){
    			bonus=salary*.20;
    			}
    			else if((years >=6)&&(years<=10)){
    				bonus=salary*.50;
    			}
    			else if(years >=11){
    				bonus=salary*.75;
    			}
     
    		return bonus;
     
    	}
    	public void showData()
    	{
    		System.out.println("Bonus = "+ busLogic());
     
    	}
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) 
    	{
    	Scanner sc = new Scanner (System.in);
     
    	System.out.println("Years in service: ");
    	double years = sc.nextDouble();
    	System.out.println("Salary: ");
    	double salary = sc.nextDouble();
     
    	YearEndBonus  yrBonus=new YearEndBonus (years,salary);
    	yrBonus.busLogic();
    	yrBonus.showData();
    	}
     
     
    }

    You can also use getter and setter methods to get the input that is upto you. But you can use methods, it is useful for resusing the code whenever we want the same functionality.


    If any clarification please post here
