    Question payroll code problem

    Im really new to java and need help with class.

    Here is what im trying to do


    Write a class that accepts a user's hourly rate of pay and the number of hours worked.
    Display the user's gross pay (gross pay = hours worked * hourly rate),
    the tax withheld (tax withheld = gross pay * tax rate) and the net pay
    (net pay = gross pay - tax withheld).Use a named constant for storing the tax rate of
    0.15

    Here is my Code:

     
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    class Tutorial
    {
    public static void main(String[] args);
    {
     
    Scanner kb = new Scanner(sysem.in);
     
    double = hourlyrate;
    double = hoursworked;
    double = grosspay;
    double = netpay;
    double = taxrate 0.15;
    double = taxwithheld;
     
    System.out.println("Please enter rate of pay?" );
    hourlyrate = kb.nextdouble();
     
    System.out.println("Hours Worked?" );
    hoursworked = kb.nextdouble();
     
    System.out.println("Gross pay:" )+(grosspay = hoursworked*hourlyrate);
     
    System.out.println("Tax Withheld:" )+(taxwithheld= grosspay*taxrate);
     
    System.out.println("netpay:" )+(netpay= Grosspay-taxwithheld);
     
    }
    }

    Weldone JJAus! You tried, but not quite.
    Firstly, you declare the primitive types such as double as:
     double hourlyRate;
    and not
     double = hourlyrate;
    Note my use of capital 'R' for rate.

    Secondly, a convention for declaring constants:
     final double TAX_RATE = 0.15;

    Thirdly, your use of parenthesis seem weird to me. Overall, you really need to do more studying to master the basics of java before coming to forums to post questions.
    Who holds the KEY to all knowledge?

    You're off base, Mugambbo. Advice and guidance to better understand Java and programming basics is one of the main reasons for coming to this forum and others like it. It's what we do.

    @JJAus: Thank you for taking the time to learn to post your code correctly.

    What's your question? What help do you need?

    This statement (and the others like it) do not require the 'variable = ' part, and your use of parentheses is incorrect:

    System.out.println("Gross pay:" )+(grosspay = hoursworked*hourlyrate);

    and can be reduced/corrected to:

    System.out.println( "Gross pay: " + (hoursworked*hourlyrate) );
