PR4E 4.6 python for everyone

I keep getting error you must prompt, but the user is getting prompt?

4.6 Write a program to prompt the user for hours and rate per hour using input to compute gross pay. Pay should be the normal rate for hours up to 40 and time-and-a-half for the hourly rate for all hours worked above 40 hours. Put the logic to do the computation of time-and-a-half in a function called computepay() and use the function to do the computation. The function should return a value. Use 45 hours and a rate of 10.50 per hour to test the program (the pay should be 498.75). You should use input to read a string and float() to convert the string to a number. Do not worry about error checking the user input unless you want to - you can assume the user types numbers properly. Do not name your variable sum or use the sum() function.

def computepay(h,r): hrs = input("Enter Hours:") h = float(hrs) rate = input("Enter Rate:") r = float(rate) pay = (h * r) if h <= 40 : return(pay) else : ovrhrs = (h-40) regular = (r*40) othrs = ovrhrs * (r *1.5) ovrpay = (regular + othrs) return(ovrpay) print(computepay(45,10.5))

That's a useful answer
Without any help

`def computepay(h,r): if h <=40: p = h *r else: p = 40 * r + (h-40)1.5r return p

hrs = input("Enter Hours:") h = float(hrs) rate = input("Enter Rate:") r = float(rate) p = computepay(h,r) print(p)`
