I am lost - simple calculations

I hav been trying to do this all nite, The program itself runs ok, But when i enter  the over time hours it does not give me an amount. it returns 0.00.
What have i done wrong towars the end of this program as it is only the overtime pay bit that doesnt work.
#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
  float hours,pounds,amount;    
     
     printf("\n Please enter the amount of standard hours you worked ");
     scanf("%f", &hours);
     
     printf("\n Enter Hourly rate ");
      scanf("%f", &pounds);    
           
     amount = (float)hours*(float)pounds;
      printf("\n Wages for week excluding Over time %.2f pounds \n");
     
{
 float ovrtimrat;
      ovrtimrat = (float)1.25*(float)pounds;
      printf("\n Over time Rate is %.2f pounds \n");
     
{
  float ovmony,hoursa,ovrtimrat;
      printf("\n Enter hours of overtime worked ");
      scanf("%f", &hoursa);
 
     ovmony = (float)ovrtimrat*(float)hoursa;          
      printf("\n Overtime pay is %.2f pounds");

}
}
}

The printf lines where you're attempting to print out a calculated amount, must have a relevant variable passed in:


     printf("\n Wages for week excluding Over time %.2f pounds \n",amount);
   
     printf("\n Over time Rate is %.2f pounds \n",ovrtimrat);
     
     printf("\n Overtime pay is %.2f pounds",ovmony);
