Today I finalized my decision for my create task. I am going to make a program that is designed to create work stubs for employers. I plan on making the program work by taking input from the boss: the input will be how many hours a week the person will be working, and how much money they make. The program will then take out taxes, social security, medicare, etc. and output all this information on a pay stub. I plan on gathering information tomorrow, such as what percent of each check goes toward what. I hope to start the program tomorrow as well.

Today I started my program. I created my first function, and started a second function for it to call upon. My programs define every needed variable, for social security, medicare, and state and federal taxes. I plan on making each of these taxes, their own function. My main function, will be what the persons max income would be before taxes. Then this function will call on others to show what is taken out of their pay.



1.) Cryptography has been around since 2000 BC.
3.) substitution ciphers
4.)Random substitution cipher is more secure than a Caesar shift because there are 4 x 10^26 different ways to decode the substitution, therefore it is nearly impossible to decode the cipher.
5.)Frequency analysis could crack any substitution cipher.
6.) According to the reading a Random Substitution cipher they look easy to crack but is actually hard to crack.
7.) It would take me between 5-10 minutes to crack a message encrypted with a Caesar shift cipher.
