Resolved Question:

I have a program for homework that I already turned in and I know was incorrect. could I have a real programmer look at it and the description of what I was supposed to do and help me out so that I can move on to the next assignment and see what I did wrong? Below is the description of the program:


 


Modify the Week Two Java™ application using Java™ NetBeans™ IDE to meet these additional and changed business requirements:


 



  • The company has recently changed its total annual compensation policy to improve sales.


 



  • A salesperson will continue to earn a fixed salary of $100,000. The current sales target for every salesperson is $120,000.

  • The sales incentive will only start when 80% of the sales target is met. The current commission is 5%  of total sales.



    • If a salesperson exceeds the sales target, the commission will increase based on an acceleration factor. The acceleration factor is 1.25.



    • The application should ask the user to enter annual sales, and it should display the total annual compensation.



    • The application should also display a table of potential total annual compensation that the salesperson could have earned, in $5000 increments above the salesperson’s annual sales, until it reaches 50% above the salesperson’s annual sales.


    Sample Table: Assuming a total annual sales of $100,000, the table would look like this:






















































    Total Sales



    Total Compensation



    100,000



    <>



    105,000



    <>



    110,000



    <>



    115,000



    <>



    120,000



    <>



    125,000



    <>



    130,000



    <>



    135,000



    <>



    140,000



    <>



    145,000



    <>



    150,000



    <>



    The Java™ application should also meet these technical requirements:



    • The application should have at least one class, in addition to the application’s controlling class.

    • The source code must demonstrate the use of conditional and looping structures.


    There should be proper documentation in the source code.


 


The code I have thus far which does not compile correctly is as follows:
