We cannot provide answers to school assignments.  That is grounds for removal from this site.  (for both you and the experts involved.)  We can provide only limitied help in accademic assignments.    We can answer specific (direct) questions, like you might ask your teacher.  We can review your work and post suggestions, again, like your teacher might do.

Do you have specific questions?
Do you have any work on this (incomplete even) that we can review?

You can stoart by writting the function declaration, that is the name of the function, its parameters and return value.

FYI, If you were to answer my question it wouldn't be the answer to my school assignment, it would only be the answer to my Programmer Defined Function.

nietod,
I've already done that.  

shay,
I don't understand why it would be
x*0.8 = net pay when 20% should be taken from the gross pay.  If 0.8 was the percentage that would mean 80% is taken from the gross pay. Am I missing something?
