## A little help!

Can anyone help me with this little problem, I need to make my sum a
float so that the answer can be decimal numbers. I would
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
worked"
);

// Prompt user to enter horly rate
rate"
);

// convert from string to int
number1 = Integer.parseInt( hours );
number2 = Integer.parseInt( rate );

// multiply the numbers
sum = number1 * number2;

// display the check
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( null, "Pay to the order of:
" +
name + sum, "PayCheck", JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE );

System.exit(0);

Try using doubleint in the code, instead of just int by itself.
ament too sure on this but it may work...
