Payroll Java Help

Very new to Java and starting to learn,but getting confused along the way ..

Here is what im trying to do -

Write a class that accepts a user's hourly rate of pay and the number of hours worked.
Display the user's gross pay (gross pay = hours worked * hourly rate),
the tax withheld (tax withheld = gross pay * tax rate) and the net pay
(net pay = gross pay - tax withheld).Use a named constant for storing the tax rate of
0.15

Here is my code

import java.util.Scanner;

	class Tutorial
{
	public static void main(String[] args);
	{
	
	Scanner kb = new Scanner(sysem.in);
	
	double = hourlyrate;
	double = hoursworked;
	double = grosspay;
	double = netpay;
	double = taxrate 0.15;
	double = taxwithheld;
	
	System.out.println("Please enter rate of pay?" );
	hourlyrate = kb.nextdouble();
	
	System.out.println("Hours Worked?" );
	hoursworked = kb.nextdouble();
	
	System.out.println("Gross pay:" )+(grosspay = hoursworked*hourlyrate);
	
	System.out.println("Tax Withheld:" )+(taxwithheld= grosspay*taxrate);
	
	System.out.println("netpay:" )+(netpay= Grosspay-taxwithheld);
	
	}
}

A few mistakes in there. See if you can tell us what they were and why.

import java.util.Scanner;

	class Tutorial
{
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{
	
	Scanner kb = new Scanner(System.in);
	
	double hourlyrate;
	double hoursworked;
	double grosspay;
	double netpay;
	double taxrate = 0.15;
	double taxwithheld;
	
	System.out.println("Please enter rate of pay?" );
	hourlyrate = kb.nextDouble();
	
	System.out.println("Hours Worked?" );
	hoursworked = kb.nextDouble();
	
	grosspay = hoursworked*hourlyrate;

	System.out.println("Gross pay: " +grosspay);

	taxwithheld= grosspay*taxrate;
	
	System.out.println("Tax Withheld: " +taxwithheld);

	netpay= grosspay-taxwithheld;
	
	System.out.println("netpay: "+netpay);
	
	}
}

Thank you for so much help - My 'variable = ' part, and use of parentheses is incorrect

Ok.

The other expert in this question has been a long-time bastion of my own learning process. I do hope you read and followed his comment, and really, I'd prefer if you'd split the points between us. Thanks.

Don't worry about points. btw, variable names in Java should be in camel case, beginning lower case
