    Default Payroll code runs fine, but if I input hours > 40, the cost to employer calculation goes wrong...

    --- Update ---

    [/COLOR]Oh gosh, I think I fixed the first error, but now I'm receiving another error in my Net Pay print statement at the end.
    Here is what I'm supposed to receive:
    Net Pay: 599.86
    Here is my sample run:
    run-single:
    Enter hourly rate in dollars and cents --> 27.16
    Enter number of hours and tenths worked --> 37.9

    PAYROLL REPORT
    Rate: 27.16
    Hours: 37.9

    Gross Pay: 1029.36
    Federal Tax: 257.34
    State Tax: 93.41
    FICA: 78.75
    Net Pay: 771.86

    Employer's FICA contribution: 78.75
    Employer's UEI and DI contribution: 20.59
    Cost to Employer: 1128.70

    Enter hourly rate in dollars and cents -->
    Here is my updated code:
    package assignmentproject1;
    /* CHANGE (FINAL) VAR NAMES, SCAN & VERIFY, 
    ORGANIZE AND PUT FORMULAS ON BOTTOM, ORGANIZE VAR @ TOP, */
    import java.util.*;
    public class Project1 
    {
     
        public static void main (String[] args) 
        {
     
            Scanner stdin = new Scanner (System.in);
     
     
            final int OVERTIMEHOURS = 40;           
            final double FEDTAX = 0.25, CALITAX = 0.09075, SS_MEDI_FICA = 0.0765,
                    UEIDI = 0.02, OVERTIMEMULTIPLIER = 1.5;
            double  fedtax, ss_medi_fica, grossPay, rate, totalcost_to_Employer, 
                    calitax, netPay, hours, ueidi, employerFICA;
            boolean overtime = false;
     
     
            //Inputs rate and hours, then calculates the gross pay.
            System.out.print ("Enter hourly rate in dollars and cents --> ");
            rate =  stdin.nextDouble ();
     
     
            while (rate > 0)
            {

    is it because you computed it wrong?
    it seems that there are no errors in your code, right?

    Yeah, that's got to be a typo what the professor typed lol... it's weird because it's based on our first project.. and I got everything all of the specs right, and the output that the professor wanted too... oh well, not worrying about it anymore =\
