Hey everyone , I was recently solving this problem and I’m facing an issue. I can’t seem to fulfill the hourly rate times 1.5 part. How would I solve it?

Expected output - 498.75

My output - 708.75

**3.1** Write a program to prompt the user for hours and rate per hour using input to compute gross pay. Pay the hourly rate for the hours up to 40 and 1.5 times the hourly rate for all hours worked above 40 hours. Use 45 hours and a rate of 10.50 per hour to test the program (the pay should be 498.75). You should use **input** to read a string and **float()** to convert the string to a number. Do not worry about error checking the user input - assume the user types numbers properly.

```
hours = input("Enter Hours:")
rate = input("Enter rate:")
# Converts to floats for multiplication
hours = float(hours)
rate = float(rate)
if hours > 40:
overtime = rate*1.5
total = hours*overtime
else :
total = hours*rate
print(total)
```
