# help writing formula to determine salary/overtime

Alright, here's the deal, the wonderful people at my college bookstore didn't manage to get my textbook in until 1 1/2 weeks left in the semester and I need some help putting together a formula in Excel 2003 for the final that will determine the salary of multiple employees, at different hours, pay per hour and overtime.

i.e.
employee 1: 40 hours at \$9
emp. 2: 48 at 10
emp. 3: 42 at \$8
emp. 4: 44 at \$9.50

All hours after 40 hours are time and a half. If someone could help construct a formula for this it would be hugely appreciated because my efforts to do so have only resulted in profanity.

We'll also have to determine pay after 8% taxes, so I'm assuming that can be done with a forumla sum=gross pay*8% followed by the auto sum feature for all columns in that field?

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

I am assuming you are looking for one formula that does all the calculations and sums?

If so, try

=SUM(IF(A1:A4>40,A1:A4*B1:B4+(A1:A4-40)*B1:B4*1.5,A1:A4*B1:B4))

Confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

You can then multiply that by 1.8 for your pay after tax calculation.

If you looking for individual calculations: =IF(A1>40,A1*B1+(A1-40)*B1*1.5,A1*B1) copied down and then use sum(c1:c4) at bottom of range.

Note: Adjust all ranges to suit your table.

Well I appreciate, thank you kindly. Now just to clarify what would A1 and A4 represent? regular hours and overtime hours?

The A1:A4 is the range where your hours are located for each employee and B1:B4 is the corresponding wages.

Note: Please change the formula to this one below. I noted that I a fault with the previous one I posted.

=SUM(IF(A1:A4>40,(40*B1:B4)+(A1:A4-40)*B1:B4*1.5,A1:A4*B1:B4))

Remember to evaluate it with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER, not just Enter
