The following code is supposed to:

Display a ten year schedule that show the increase for ten years worth of work based oon a users input.

The inputs are:
1.starting salary
2.annual percentage increase (this amount entered remains contant throughout the program)
3.years worked (experience)

I have a problem with implementing a way to get the annual salary to incrementhigher during the ten year schedule.
Thanks, lauren


My source code:

import TerminalIO.KeyboardReader;
public class teacherpay{
      public static void main(String [] args) {

      KeyboardReader reader = new KeyboardReader();

      double startSalary;
      double percentageIncrease;
      double annualSalary;
      int yearsWorked;
      double salaryRange;
      double yearN;   // extra variable declared

      startSalary = reader.readDouble("Please enter your starting salary: $ ");
      System.out.println("");

      percentageIncrease = reader.readDouble("Please enter a whole number for the annual increase percentage: % ");
      System.out.println("");

      yearsWorked = reader.readInt("Please enter the number of years worked:  ");
      System.out.println("");
      System.out.println();

   percentageIncrease = (percentageIncrease / 100);
   annualSalary = ((startSalary * percentageIncrease) + startSalary);

   for(yearsWorked = 1; yearsWorked<=10; yearsWorked = yearsWorked+1)

     System.out.println("Annual salary for year:  " + yearsWorked + ": " + annualSalary);
         System.out.println();
         System.out.println();
         System.out.println();
   }

   }

put the calculation iside your loop:

   annualSalary = startSalary;

   for(yearsWorked = 1; yearsWorked<=10; yearsWorked = yearsWorked+1)

     System.out.println("Annual salary for year:  " + yearsWorked + ": " + annualSalary);
        System.out.println();
        System.out.println();
        System.out.println();
      annualSalary += annualSalary * percentageIncrease;
   }

may want to do the calc first:

   annualSalary = startSalary;

   for(yearsWorked = 1; yearsWorked<=10; yearsWorked = yearsWorked+1)

      annualSalary += annualSalary * percentageIncrease;
     System.out.println("Annual salary for year:  " + yearsWorked + ": " + annualSalary);
        System.out.println();
        System.out.println();
        System.out.println();
   }

Thanks! I have added but it still won't calculate and display the schedule range.

*The terminal window results display:

Annual salary for year: 1: $ 10000
Annual salary for year: 2: $ 10000
Annual salary for year: 3: $ 10000
Annual salary for year: 4: $ 10000
and so forth....
 
.........the amount doesn't change ($10000).  lauren

*Here is the changed source code:

import TerminalIO.KeyboardReader;
public class _startsalary {
      public static void main(String [] args) {

      KeyboardReader reader = new KeyboardReader();

      double startSalary;
      double percentageIncrease;
      double annualSalary;
      int yearsWorked;
      double salaryRange;
      double yearN;   // extra variable declared

      startSalary = reader.readDouble("Please enter your starting salary: $ ");
      System.out.println("");

      percentageIncrease = reader.readDouble("Please enter a whole number for the annual increase percentage: % ");
      System.out.println("");

      yearsWorked = reader.readInt("Please enter the number of years worked:  ");
      System.out.println("");
      System.out.println();

   percentageIncrease = (percentageIncrease / 100);
   annualSalary = ((startSalary * percentageIncrease) + startSalary);//after your message(object) I tried keeping and taking out this line of code and it made no difference?
   
   annualSalary = startSalary;  

   for(yearsWorked = 1; yearsWorked<=10; yearsWorked = yearsWorked+1)

     System.out.println("Annual salary for year:  " + yearsWorked + ": " + annualSalary);
         System.out.println();
         System.out.println();
         System.out.println();
         annualSalary += annualSalary * percentageIncrease;
   }

   }

I put the change in and it displayed only the 11th year (?) result that looked like it could have been a correct amount for that year.

   annualSalary = startSalary;

   for(yearsWorked = 1; yearsWorked<=10; yearsWorked = yearsWorked+1)
   
      annualSalary += annualSalary * percentageIncrease;
      
    System.out.println("Annual salary for year:  " + yearsWorked + ": " + annualSalary);
         System.out.println();
         System.out.println();
         System.out.println();
   }

   }
