Home Work ? (Sales Commissions) Use a one-dimensional array to solve the following problem: A company pays its salespeople on a commission basis. The salespeople receive $200 commission basis per week plus 9% of their gross sales for that week. For example, a salesperson who grosses $5000 in sales in a week receives $200 plus 9% of $5000 (200+9%x5000), or a total of $650. Write an application (using an array of counters) that determines how many of the salespeople earned salaries in each of the following ranges (assume that each salesperson’s salary is truncated to an integer amount):
a) $200–299
:thumbsup: $300–399
c) $400–499
d) $500–599
e) $600–699
f) $700–799
g) $800–899
h) $900–999
i) $1000 and over

My Code that does not work: I am missing a step, do I need an if statement?

public class Array
static void Main(string[] args)
int[] frequency = { 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 };// declare array

double sales = 0; //declare variable

double salary; //declare variable

Console.WriteLine("Please enter your total sales, enter -1 when you are done."); //prompt user for input

int input = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine()); //read input from user

salary = (input * 0.09) + 200;

for (int counter = 0; counter < frequency.Length; counter++)
Console.WriteLine("{sales,10}{1,9}", counter, frequency[counter]);

Let's take this step by step shall we? First, are you able to correctly calculate the sales amount for each person entered?

Once you are able to do that, use an if statement to figure out which counter in the array should be incremented. If the income is between $200–299, increment the first index in the array (which is array[0]), and so on for each income entered.
