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
Exercise 2: Rewrite your pay program using
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
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 A
Enter score: perfect Bad score
Enter score: 10.0 Bad score
Enter score: 0.75 C
Enter score: 0.5 F
Run the program repeatedly as shown above to test the various different values for input.
