    really appreicate it . Thanks, Eric


    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;


    public class paycheck{

    public static void main( String[] args )
    {

    String hours, // Hours worked
    name, // Name of worker
    rate; // Hourly rate


    int number1, // first number to multiply
    number2, // second number to multiply
    sum; // sum of both numbers

    // Prompt user to enter name
    name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog( "Who Goes There?" );


    // Prompt user to enter hours worked
    hours = JOptionPane.showInputDialog( "Please enter your hours worked"
    );

    Re: A little Help!

    Are you asking how to declare a variable as float? That would be

    float sum;

    And I expect you don't want your hourly rate variable to be an integer,
    unless you're living in a country where the currency is almost worthless.
    So declare your "number2" variable (not a good choice of name) as float
    also, and calculate it as Float.parseFloat(rate).
