how do you code a sum that will give a bonus total for a workers overtime payments of £12 per hour. this is for a programmers training course.language is pascal,the employees get a attendance bonus for every 6 hours worked per day then an additional bonus for each hour worked over that.so i need to show the bonus after deducting the 6 hours then multipy the remaining hours by the bonus then add the attendance bonus.

First question, what language?

Second question, if you already know the value is 12 pounds why do you need a sum?

If you can give a little more background then I can certainly help to some extent.

I must confess that my pascal is a little rusty (13+ years ago) however here is a bit of pseudo-code that may help you along the way.

basichours = 0
basicpay = 0
overtimehours = 0
overtimepay = 0
attendancebonus = 0
hoursworked = 0
totalpay = 0

IF hoursworked > 6 then
  basichours = 6
else
  basichours = hoursworked
end if

overtimehours = hoursworked - basichours

IF basichours >= 6 then
  attendancebonus = <some money>
end if

basicpay = basichours * <basic pay rate>
overtimepay = overtimehours * <overtime pay rate>

totalpay = basicpay + overtimepay + attendancebonus
