(chime)…- [Narrator] Welcome back.…How did you make out with the challenge?…I hope you had fun with it.…What I'd like to do is walk you through my solution…and kind of give you some insight along the way.…Remember, everybody programs differently.…So if yours looks different than mine,…that's totally fine.…Let me add a new worksheet to my source package.…I'm going to call it payroll solution.…I'm going to start by getting rid of the print line…for the welcome.…
The first thing that I want to do is to create a variable…that will hold the hourly rate.…So I'm going to do variable rate is equal to 10.5.…Next, I'm going to go ahead and define my function.…My function is going to be called earnings.…I'm going to do d-e-f earnings.…This particular function is going to take in a string…that indicates whether it's an hourly employee…or a salaried employee.…So let's start with s colon string comma.…And it also takes in the number of hours worked…if it is an hourly employee.…
I'm going to go ahead and call that h…and I'll make that a double.…
