I need some help

Can you guys help me write a pseudocode, please?

Here's the problem:

Consider the following description of a problem

A company intends to offer a salary increase in accordance with the position of each employee, as the following table

position  --    raise

manager -->         5%
engineer ->        25%
technician ->      40%

develop an algorithm that reads the salary and job code of a employe and calculate the new salary.

if the position of the employee is not in the table, it must receive an increase of 50%. in the end, the algorithm should indicate the old salary, new salary and the difference between them.

present an algorithm using the Structure IF

and they ask for another algorytm for the Case Structure

I'm trying to write the algorithm for that problem, asik.

i'm taking code classes and i still have a lot to learn.

can you help me generate a code for that particular problem, using the structure IF? and another algorithm for the same problem, using the structure case?

```IF (Person.Role == Role)
{
Wage.Difference = Wage.Initial * Role.Raise
Wage.Final = Wage.Initial + Wage.Difference
}
ELSE
{
Wage.Difference = Wage.Initial * 0.5
Wage.Final = Wage.Initial + Wage.Difference
}```

That's how I'd write it, but depends on how they've taught you to write pseudo code.

It is just a simple conditional algorithm ->

```read What's your position?

if (Position = Manager) {
NewSalary = CurrentSalary * (1 + 5/100)
} else if (Position = Engineer) {
NewSalary = CurrentSalary * (1 + 25/100)
} else if ... {

} else {
NewSalary = CurrentSalary * (1 + 50/100)
}

DiffSalary = NewSalary - CurrentSalary

print CurrentSalary
print NewSalary
print DiffSalary
```

with "case" it is practically the same  just change the conditional with something like this

```case Position of
Manager: NewSalary = CurrentSalary * (1 + 5/100)
Engineer: NewSalary = CurrentSalary * (1 + 25/100)
...
default: NewSalary = CurrentSalary * (1 + 50/100)

endcase
```

Cheers

I understand you want help with that, but you didn't ask a question, so short of providing you with a complete answer to your assignment I don't know what to say. Do you not understand what is an If structure, i.e.

```if [condition] then
(...)
else if [other condition] then
(...)
else
(...)```

? Or a switch-case statement? I can only guess at what you don't understand, if you don't point it out.

```// raise amounts as decimals

var manager_raise = 1.05
var engineer_raise = 1.25
var technician_raise = 1.40

foreach (employee in company) {
if (employee.job == "manager") { employee.wage *= manager_raise }
elseif (employee.job == "engineer") { employee.wage *= engineer_raise }
elseif (employee.job == "technician") { employee.wage *= technician_raise }
}```
