2.  Problem 1: Create a Python program to solve a simple payroll calculation. Calculate the amount of pay,  given hours worked, and hourly rate. (The formula to calculate payroll is pay = hourly rate * hours worked.) Display hourly rate, hours worked, and pay.

Problem 2: Create a Python program to calculate the average miles per gallon obtained on a trip. Input the amount of gas used and the number of miles driven. (The formula to calculate miles per gallon is miles per gallon = number of miles driven / amount of gas used. ) Display gas used, miles driven and MPG.   Use  your own values to test the.  You can hard code the values or you can use the input() function. See lesson 3 for sample code.
