    Exercise 1: Rewrite your pay computation to give the employee 1.5 times the hourly rate for hours worked above 40 hours.

    Enter Hours: 45
    Enter Rate: 10
    Pay: 475.0
    #Use this space to write and run your code

    Exercise 2: Rewrite your pay program using try and except so that your program handles non-numeric input gracefully by printing a message and exiting the program. The following shows two executions of the program:

    Enter Hours: 20
    Enter Rate: nine
    Error, please enter numeric input
    Enter Hours: forty
    Error, please enter numeric input
    #Use this space to write and run your code

    Exercise 3: Write a program to prompt for a score between 0.0 and 1.0. If the score is out of range, print an error message. If the score is between 0.0 and 1.0, print a grade using the following table:

    Score   Grade
    >= 0.9     A
    >= 0.8     B
    >= 0.7     C
    >= 0.6     D
    < 0.6    F
    Enter score: 0.95
    Enter score: perfect
    Bad score
    Enter score: 10.0
    Bad score
    Enter score: 0.75
    Enter score: 0.5
    #Use this space to write and run your code

    Run the program repeatedly as shown above to test the various different values for input.

    1. We will learn about functions in Chapter 4 and loops in Chapter 5.↩
