PHP Code

I have the following html form that has two text boxes "hours" and "wage". I need a PHP script that can compute the hours and any hours over 40 as time-and-a-half. Also the data must be validated to a decimal point value, even the hours. Can anyone help me?
<h2 style = "text-align:center">Enter Paycheck Data</h2>

<form name="paycheck" action="Paycheck.php" method="post">

<p>Hours Worked: <input type="text" name="hours" /></p>

<p>Hourly Wage: $<input type="text" name="wage" /></p>

<p><input type="reset" value="Clear Form" />&nbsp; 

     &nbsp;<input type="submit" name="Submit" 

     value="Send Form" /></p>

</form>

$hours = $_POST['hours'];
$wage = $_POST['wage'];
$overtime=0;
if ($hours > 40) 
  $overtime = $hours-40;

$pay_amount = ($hours * $wage) + ($overtime * $wage * 1.5);

echo "Pay amount:".$pay_amount;

Will this also validate the data from the text boxes as well?

Thank you!

not very much,

depends on how much checking you want

you could use something like this

if (!is_numeric($hours))
  echo "Hours is not a number.";
