Pay raise

It's good to be a programmer: your salary will grow rapidly. And if this doesn't happen, you can influence the situation with a little help from your hacker friends. Imagine that you have access to the automated payroll system. You need to write an interceptor method that will add $1000 to each salary payment.

In the hackSalary method, create a new integer called x which adds 1000 to int a (salary). Then in the same method, print the ("required text but include " + yourNewInteger + "in the argument.") Don't forget correct punctuation :O

In the hackSalary method you should include one line with the output, with the text required, inserting your operation and finishing wit the other text required. Just concatenate these wit symbol '+'

It took 32 tries to realize that it didn't want println, it wanted print lol

Couldn't work this out when I thought that it was correct. Had to get help and I'd missed the " : " got to read these questions better, silly mistake again.

Uh noo, I didn't see my mistake for a soooo long time: It was just "...per months."

I tried it 17 times even though I nearly had it right the first time. I was wondering what was wrong every time I would change something a little. Then it hit me! I forgot the Colon " : " after the " is " in the string. Your salary is: 8000 dollars per month. I kept putting it like this "Your salary is " Instead of like this "Your salary is: " If you got it wrong just check it over again in detail to make sure you did not miss anything like I did the first few times. Even a missing colon " : " can mess you up on this one.

I repeated the output 17 times, even though my output values were all correct the very first time. What did I do wrong you ask? I forgot to put the period after "month"! Attention to detail means everything, so even though you get the code and your values correct, better triple check it matches 100 % of what is being asked of you. Can't believe I missed it, lol.

kenneth payne XD I also repeated it 17 times and my problem was very similar to yours. I forgot to put a colon after "is" Yes attention to detail is very important. I posted that in my response before I read this one.

My results are 9000 like what they wanted. But it doesn't pass the final check The hackSalary method should increase the input parameter by 1000 and output text to the screen according to the specified template. Any help is appreciated

the 9000 is just an example, make it so that the answer is 8000 since your parameter should only increase by 1000.

when you have a = a + 1000 in your print statement just do "+(a)+ not "+(a+1000)+
