    Default Help me with beginner coding

    Write a method named pay that accepts a real number for a TA's salary and an integer for the number of hours the TA worked this week, and returns how much money to pay the TA. For example, the call pay(5.50, 6) should return 33.0.

    The TA should receive "overtime" pay of 1 normal salary for any hours above 8. For example, the call pay(4.00, 11) should return (4.00 * 8) + (6.00 * 3) or 50.0.
    my code
    public double pay(double x,int y){
    double sum=0;
    double hours=8.0;
    if(y>hours){
    sum=(y-hours)*(1.5*x) + (hours*x);

    }
    return sum;
    }


    # name expected return your return result
    1 pay(5.5, 6) 33.0 0.0 icon fail
    2 pay(4.0, 11) 50.0 50.0 icon pass
    3 pay(10.0, 40) 560.0 560.0 icon pass
    4 pay(0.25, 7) 1.75 0.0 icon fail
    5 pay(0.0, 20) 0.0 0.0 icon pass
    6 pay(9.0, 0) 0.0 0.0 icon pass

    Welcome to the Forum! I'm new too! (actually relearning java XD) I'll see if I can help!
    So X = what the TA is getting paid and Y is the number of hours?

    --- Update ---

    Your problem is you forgot your else statement!
