Please use code tags!! It works like this:
[code] .......code goes here......... [/code]
I created a new thread for you because you have asked a question unrelated to your previous question.

Yes, it works. Why did you need me to test it for you? You should test your own code by using an IDE such as IDLE. You can also run your script from the command prompt.

A couple of suggestions:

Use raw_input() instead of input(). This will avoid the possibility of someone entering malicious code.

Set up a while loop to validate the initial entry that should be 40 hours or less. Something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. while True:
  2.     workedhours = int(raw_input("\nPlease enter number of hours worked this week: "))
  3.     if workedhours > 40:
  4.         print "Incorrect, please enter worked hours this week again (must not be over 40)."
  5.     else: break
You don't need the if statement "if workedhours <= 40".

Please, imran akhtar, do not ask new and unrelated questions in the same thread. Start a new thread. Please post your code in your message and enclose the code with code tags. This is preferable to viewing an attachment.

Under bytes > topic > python > answers, there should be a large button in the upper left of the window: "New Thread"

Code tags work like this:
[code]x + y = z
print z

There is a code tag button on the toolbar in the "Reply to Thread" and "Post New Thread" windows. Highlight all your code, then select the code tag button.

Do what bvdet says -- don't just look at your own thread! Instead, go all the way up to the top of the window above your thread, where it says "bytes > topic > python > answers", and click on "answers". Then you will see the "New Thread" button.

If you learn how the forum works, you will be so much more productive and people will be more willing to help you.
