### too few arguments

 ``123456789101112131415161718`` ``````double compute_taxes(double gpay) { double gross; double td; // to hold the tax deduction if (gross <= 1000) td = gross * 0.5; else if(gross < 1500) td= gross * 0.6; else td= gross * 0.7; } double compute_npay(double gpay) { double gross; double npay, td; compute_taxes(); npay = gpay - td; } ``````

Write the function double compute_npay(double gpay) that receives an employee's gross pay using the value parameter gpay, computes the net pay and returns it. the net pay is the gross pay - the tax deduction. To compute the net pay, it first calls compute_taxes() to compute the tax deduction.

line 2: too few arguments to function 'double compute_taxes(double)'
line 16: at this point in file
The error tells you exactly what the problem is are where it is. What don't you understand about it?
wow im sorry, i just dont know whats wrong with it, sorry
the compute taxes function takes an argument ` double gpay`
on line 16 you call `compute_taxes();`
By only using () and nothing inside of the parenthesis, you are passing no arguments.
just because "gpay" is visible to compute_npay, does not mean that comput_taxes sees it.
you need to `compute_taxes(gpay);`

Also your function does not return a value

 ``1234567891011121314151617181920`` ``````double compute_taxes(double gpay) { // double gross; //Im guessing you mean gpay, but do not redefine it if (gpay <= 1000) return gpay * 0.5; else if(gpay < 1500) return gpay * 0.6; else return gpay * 0.7; } double compute_npay(double gpay) { //double gross; Unused double npay, td; td = compute_taxes(gpay); npay = gpay - td; return npay; //Probably what you need to do here } ``````
