Indentation on python

My python program isnt running. Im sure im missing something but im pretty sure i just indented wrong. Can anyone lend me a hand? thank you!



def main():
sales = getSales()
advancedPay = getAdvancedPay()
commRate = DetermineCommRate(sales)
pay = (sales * commRate) - advancedPay
print("The pay is $". format(pay, ",.2f"), sep="")

if pay < 0:
print("The salesperson must reimburse")
print("the company")

def getSales():
monthlySales = float(input("Enter the monthly sales: "))
return monthlySales

def getAdvancedPay():
print("Enter the amount of advanced pay or ")
print("Enter 0 if no advanced pay was given. ")
advancedPay - float(input("Advanced pay: ")
return advancedPay


def DetermineCommRate
if sales < 10000:
rate = 0.10
elif sales >= 10000 and sales <= 14999.99:
rate = 0.12
elif sales >= 15000 and sales <= 17999.99:
rate = 0.14
elif sales >= 18000 and sales <= 21999.99:
rate = 0.16
else:
rate = 0.18

return rate

main()

Answer

From what I can see, sales is a local variable in the main(), and you are trying to access it in DetermineCommRate, and you have syntax errors in the definition of that function

def DetermineCommRate(sales):

Currently, you are passing sales to it, but not accepting it.

Also, your following line should be indented to run in the main()

if pay < 0:
    print("The salesperson must reimburse")
    print("the company")

And a syntax error in this line too

advancedPay = float(input("Advanced pay: "))
